the Image of the 18-month-old Chloe, who continues to fall through the air, haunt the remains of her grandfather Salvatore Anello.
It was in fact him, who stood at 11. floor at the top of the cruise ship Freedom of the Seas in port in Puerto Rico with the little girl on the arm, as she went out through the window.
the Grandfather has all the time maintained that the death was an accident, but now the unhappy man charged with negligent manslaughter.
Overvågningsvideo from skibsdækket, which is being used in the trial against him, shows how he lifts the little girl up on a railing, so that she can better see out.
In an interview with the tv station CBS, he explains that he thought there was glass in the window, which would prevent the child from falling.
"I thought it was glass. That I am saying to myself. It is as if I continue to experience it, and I just thought that there was glass. I don't know what else I should say to you," says the tearful man to the tv station's journalist. The little girl fell 45 feet down and hit the concrete on the pier in San Juan. She was pronounced dead a short time after.
"I can remember that I tried to find her on the floor, and when I saw her fall. I saw her fall. I saw her fall, and I just couldn't believe it."
CBS Aresbet has been talking with her grandfather this week, where the case comes to court. The dødsulykken took place in the summer on a cruise ship of the company Royal Caribbean Cruise.
Salvatore Anello will return to, that he thought there was glass in the window.
"And I thought, 'Oh, god'. And I think, that I in a moment was in shock, and I just stood there. And then I remember that I screamed that I thought there was glass."
Also, your grandfather's lawyer tries to use the fact that there were not warned that there was glass in the window, as a defense for him.
"If that is the case, and the (krydstogtselskabet, red.) don't want anyone to have to sit on the banister, then they should say it. There was no sign that lit on it. There were no warnings. Nothing," says lawyer Michael Winkleman.
If Salvatore Anello being found guilty of manslaughter, he risks up to three years in prison.
In this week Salvatore Anello also spoke with the tv station NBC News, and to them he tells that he does not fear a punishment:
"They can't do anything about me, which is worse than what has already happened."
"She was such a beautiful, little girl."Date Of Update: 26 November 2019, 17:00
