Child falls to death on Royal Caribbean ship docked in Puerto Rico

Freedom of the Seas a cruise ship owned by Royal Caribbean backs in port in Bayonne New Jersey

The 1-year-old's body was taken to a forensic unit in San Juan, the capital.

Cruise ship crew have a code word for when someone falls overboard, revealed former employee Joshua Kinser.

"We heard the screams of the families because we were close, " one passenger said.

"I looked because of the mother's cry", the tourist told the outlet. "That tonality, a scream of pain of that nature, does not compare with any other scream".

The girl and her family, from IN, were enjoying a holiday aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship the Freedom of the Sea - the largest liner IN the world - before tragedy struck on Sunday afternoon.

She was on holiday on the Royal Caribbean ship with her parents and grandparents.

The child's dad has been named as police officer Alan Wiegand, from South Bend, Indiana.

Coco Gauff loses at Wimbledon, while Serena Williams wins again
Konta missed two match points at 5-2 in the decider but served it out on her next opportunity when Kvitova sent a shot long. Ash Barty's winning streak is over, and so are her chances of winning a second straight Glam Slam title.

"It's a very grave scene, very regrettable and tragic", Roman told Primera Hora in a video interview on Sunday. "The department asks the community to pray for the entire Wiegand family as they grieve", the police department said in a statement.

According to Cruisemapper.com, this week's voyage is scheduled to stop at St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados, before returning to Puerto Rico.

Police are investigating this incident.

Still, "every cruise ship has a safety plan", and "they are required to give a safety brief", he said.

"Police have now launched an investigation and are trawling CCTV of the ship", said Elmer Román, from the Department of Public Security. While it travels to destinations including the Bahamas, Caribbean, and Mexico, it also travels to Canada and frequents places on the west coast in B.C. like Vancouver. Her grandfather, Salvatore Anello, told cops he was holding her up to a window when he lost his grip and she accidentally slipped out of his arms.

WKMG reported that the girl hit an awning before landing on pavement at the dock.

Royal Caribbean, too, said it was "deeply saddened" by the incident and expressed sympathies to the family.
