Grandfather pleads guilty in toddler's death in cruise ship fall

Why am I not surprised? “The grandfather of an 18-month-old girl who fell to her death from the open window of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship last year pleaded guilty Thursday to negligent homicide.”

Weren't they from Mississippi or Some horrid place ?

I'm not a Mississippi apologist, but the state of William Faulkner, Eudora Welty and Richard Wright is not alone in have negligent, stupid people among its residents.

Ask Kitty Genovese on the subject.

Sweetheart deal. The old man can just sit around at home like he probably did anyway.

Royal Caribbean better countersue those parents into oblivion. Just like California should do to that gender reveal couple who burned down half the state.

[quote]Michael Winkleman, an attorney for the Wiegand family, said Thursday that the plea deal means that Anello, who lives in South Bend, Indiana, avoids jail time and can serve probation in his home state.

If a non-family member did this, he'd been in the can for the rest of his life.

Probation? For killing a kid?

by Anonymousreply 2310/15/2020

He shouldn't of been charged with anything to begin with, accidents happen.

by Anonymousreply 2410/15/2020

Yes, accidents do happen, but it is at a minimum criminally negligent to hold a squirmy 18 month old out an 11th floor window.

by Anonymousreply 2510/15/2020

I wonder if RC will bother to fight this. The cruise industry is hard hit. Would they or the insurers pay for attorneys fees and costs? What would they hope to get in a countersuit? The family doesn't have money.

by Anonymousreply 2610/15/2020

He knowingly dangled the kid put the open window. As r18 said, he's on film sticking his head out said window before he did it.

by Anonymousreply 2710/15/2020

Royal Carib should fight it tooth and nail. Did you read the article? The mother is still blaming the cruise line. I suppose she has to in order to live with it. But who needs these idiots being the reason for all cruise windows to be sealed shut so no future drunken idiot holds a baby out a window and drops it.

Hopefully, there will be justice for poor little Peanut.

I'd like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that Grampy was only 50 years old when this happened. He's 50 in most or all of the photos.

Hope that brightens your day a little.

"He shouldn't of been charged"

Oh dear, R24.

If Gramps was black he’d already be in jail.

by Anonymousreply 3310/15/2020

"But because the plea agreement includes no jail time and no admission of facts, it was decided the plea deal is in the best interests of the family so that they can close this horrible chapter and turn their focus to mourning Chloe and fighting for cruise passenger safety by raising awareness about the need for all common carriers to adhere to window fall prevention laws designed to protect children from falling from windows," the lawyer said in a statement.

HOW DARE THERE BE WINDOWS? They killed my baby!!

If she was squirming, wouldn’t it be considered a suicide? She could have stayed still and lived.

R30 I was surprised about that because Gramps looks more like 70. Must be a drunk.

Why wasn’t someone on deck to catch her? There’s always so many people milling about below walking the piers.

His brain probably replays those few moments over and over, and he has no choice but to watch. If he drank a lot before, he'll probably turn to alcohol even harder now.

That probably has a lot to do with the slap on the wrist, r41. No matter how dumb or deplorable this guy is, he presumably loved his granddaughter and now and until he’s dead he lives with the fact that he caused her death, preceded by moments of terror.

With a fivehead like that, he was doing her a favor.

If he was drunk enough, he might not be able to remember any of it.

If he wasn’t that drunk, then, well.... it’s not impossible he just dropped her on purpose. In which case it probably wouldn’t keep him up at night.

by Anonymousreply 4610/15/2020

The mom says safeguards should be in place. What safeguards can a cruise line put in place to prevent a grandfather from picking a child up and dropping her overboard?

by Anonymousreply 4710/15/2020

They went on that cruise to get rid of the little freak. But he couldn't wait til they got on the high seas.

The mother told him to drop Chloe off after lunch. She meant drop off at day care, not drop off the nearest window.

Huh. Blaming the drunken grandfather. There's a lack of elegance to it, but also a hearty comfortability. I approve.

R49 I should not have burst out laughing at that.

As for R43, I'm sick of that excuse. Every time a parent, guardian or family accidentally causes the death of a child, everyone says "the guilt is enough". Maybe if these stupid fucks who kill their kids accidentally serve some hard time, other stupid fucks would be more careful.

He was annoyed that he had to watch the baby while everyone else was exploring the ship and grabbing drinks. Grampy wanted to sit by the pool and ogle sideboob!

(But, actually, I saw the video and there was nothing but fatties on that junkboat.)

Plexiglass, R47! Plexiglass everywhere so we can still have a lovely view but no more loved ones can be tossed out windows or tossed overboard.
