Well, that particular site is notorious for not telling the whole story. He's basically an "ambulance chaser" type lawyer who really has it in for cruise ships. He posts any and all reports of anything that will reflect negatively on cruise ships. Regardless of the source of the story.Very sad.
Also confusing about what happened. Did the child fall overboard or fall on the ship in such a way that he died?
I keep picturing when Michael Jackson held his son off the balcony. Makes it no less tragic.I'm sorry, but there's a word for this. and that word is manslaughter. More specifically, involuntary manslaughter as this could is death resulting from reckless conduct.
He held her out an open window?
Yes. I thought it was the same as in the area outside the Windjammer on Radiance Class ships. They slide open and closed. And yes, you are not going to accidentally fall out of them without being ridiculously stupid.The windows in question have been on that ship since 2006. They are above the level of the railing and up on the pool deck, below the overhang, and provide necessary ventilation. They are not easy to "accidentally" fall out of. They are essentially vertical and you would have to lift a child up and OUT the window for there to be any danger.
I agree. I hate when headlines read that someone "fell" off of a cruise ship. I have had to convince a few people who believe these stories and have never cruised that people can't just randomly fall off a ship. There are railings everywhere that are too high to just go over, unless they are intentionally climbing or otherwise, for the most the part.The title needs to be changed to "2 year old is DROPPED out of open window
