Puerto Rico Ports Authority spokesman José Carmona told The Associated Press that officials are also investigating whether the window was already opened or if someone had opened it.

The family of Chloe Wiegand, the toddler who fell 11 stories to her death on a cruise ship, have spoken out blaming the cruise liner for her death. He was literally crying saying 'I thought it was like she was at a hockey game. "And then she goes to bang on the glass, and the next thing you know, she's gone", Winkleman said.

When asked how the family was doing, Winkleman replied: "Terrible".

The window on the left is the one Chloe fell through while being held against the railing by her grandfather.

Winkleman noted that the Freedom of the Seas ship, which made its maiden voyage in 2006, is older, and none of the newer ships have similar windows that can be opened in the same way.

Puerto Rican police earlier told The Associated Press that Chloe had slipped from her grandfather's arms while she was held outside of the window, but this report has been disputed by the family and IN police.

Winkleman said the girl's family wants to know why a window that "should have been closed securely" was open.

"The grandfather takes her over to the window - he thinks it's all glass".

Now, he's asking why windows that could be opened were even in a children's play area.

Chloe Wiegand, who was 18 months old, was traveling with her grandparents and parents on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas when she fell to her death on Sunday, according to her parent's attorney, Michael Winkleman. The department tweeted "its sincerest condolences to Officer Alan Wiegand and his family during this hard time following the tragic loss of their child while in Puerto Rico".

The attorney added it's possible the child may have opened the window, but he said, in the end, this is a tragic, preventable accident, and he raised questions as to why there was an open window without warning signs.

"Why are you going to have this hidden danger in the middle of a kids play area?" asked Michael Winkleman of Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman.

Winkleman added that there is video of the incident, which he said he hopes to view as soon as possible.

Winkleman, on the other hand, said he believes "there is significant blame on the cruise line".

Wiegand was on vacation with her parents, grandparents and older brother from IN, according to their attorney.

The AP reported that the child's family will remain in Puerto Rico until the investigation is complete.

In a statement, Royal Caribbean said on Monday that it was "deeply saddened" by the accident. The spokesperson declined to comment on allegations of negligence.
