    Step-grandpa stuck his head out the window for sevral seconds. People on other forums are accusing him of covering up something sinister as he was the babysitter at the moment. Whatever it is, the truth will come out.

    No evidence for this whatsoever, just something I have thought about...I wonder if something was wrong with the kid and he thought this would be better than her being sick or having a deficiency all her life. Just wondering.

    In one article I read, court docs describe him as holding her "out" the window, and it looks like that's what he's doing ... not just standing her on the railing like he claims.

    All I know is if someone held my baby out a window like that, I would kill them with my bare hands. Even if my child was unharmed. I would tear their face off like an angry honey badger.

    Amen to that.

    WTF was he thinking, holding her out a window?!!!!! I felt bad for him when it first happened but now, not as much.

    The way he’s holding her with his arms stretched out like that makes it look like he did it on purpose.

    The parents of an Indiana girl who fell to her death from the open window of a cruise ship docked in Puerto Rico contend it was “physically impossible” for the child’s grandfather to lean out of that 11th floor window, as the cruise line has alleged, just before the toddler slipped from his hands.

    The parents of Chloe Wiegand also accuse Royal Caribbean Cruises of releasing deceptive surveillance images, and allege in their preliminary response filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Miami that the cruise line lied in its recent motion seeking the dismissal of the family’s lawsuit.

    That suit accuses the cruise line of negligence in Chloe's death by allowing the window in the ship’s children's play area to be open.

    In its Jan. 8 filing, Royal Caribbean alleged that surveillance video shows the child’s 51-year-old grandfather, Salvatore Anello, leaning out of the open window for about eight seconds just moments before he lifted his granddaughter up to the window, from which she fell to her death on July 8.

    The cruise line said Anello's alleged actions were "reckless and irresponsible.” He was charged last year in Puerto Rico with negligent homicide in the 18-month-old girl's death.

    But the Wiegand family says Royal Caribbean lied in its filing and that their attorney’s examination of the area shows it was impossible for Anello, of Valparaiso, Indiana, to have leaned over a wooden railing and through the angled window on the Freedom of the Seas cruise ship.

    “Royal Caribbean has demonstrably lied to this court and, in so doing, Royal Caribbean has created a false narrative to accompany Royal Caribbean’s carefully selected CCTV video upon which Royal Caribbean bases its motion to dismiss,” the family’s filing states.

    The distance between the window frame and the railing was about 18 inches so to even touch the window with the top of his head, the attorney “had to lift his feet at least seven inches off the ground,” the family says.

    The attorney “could not lean ‘out of the window frame’ due to the distance between the railing and the window frame. In fact, it would have been physically impossible for Mr. Anello to have had his head out of the window frame with his feet on the deck,” it states.
