Royal Caribbean Alleges Indiana Grandfather Aware That Cruise Ship Window Was Open When Toddler Fell To Death

Incident

CHICAGO — Royal Caribbean cruise lines told this week that new video confirms an Indiana grandfather knew a ship window was open before his granddaughter fell to her death.

18-month-old Chloe Wiegand is running toward an open window aboard the ship in Puerto Rico on July 7 and last year.

Her grandfather, Salvatore Anello, is observed following her and leaning over the railing for 14 seconds.

He then lifts Chloe and seems to hold her over the railing for around 34 seconds more, before Chloe fell 11 stories.

Last November, Anello said that he believed the window shut.

“I didn’t understand there wasn’t any glass till – absolutely till it was too late,” Anello said.

Charges And Punishments

Puerto Rican officials in late October charged 50-year-old Anello with negligent homicide.

Prosecutors have given Anello a plea deal to avoid prison, but he’d have to plead guilty.

Attorney Michael Winkelman has said that Royal Caribbean cruises were really to blame.

“These criminal charges are spilling salt on the open wounds of this grieving family. It was a terrible accident, and the family’s singular goal remains for something like this to never happen again,” Winkelman said in a statement in late October.

“Had the cruise lines just followed proper security guidelines for windows, this accident likely would never have occurred.”

Anello’s family is suing the cruise line.
