The travel world understandably remains perplexed about the untimely death of an 18 month old girl, who fell from the 11th floor of a cruise ship earlier this month. Speculation has abounded about the circumstances surrounding the girl’s death. What is known is that her grandfather was the last person to have contact with her before the fall. Now, the girl’s parents will take to the airwaves to tell their story. 

The Sun Sentinel reports that, on Monday, Alan and Kimberly Wiegand are set to talk to NBC’s “Today” show. While the exact nature of the interview has not been revealed, the couple is expected to discuss the tragedy in an effort to raise awareness to the circumstances surrounding their child’s death.

Chloe Wiegand died on July 7 while traveling on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the seas as the ship was docked in Puerto Rico. The girl’s grandfather is currently under investigation for possible homicide relating to the child’s death. But the family insists that the girl’s death was an accident that can ultimately be tracked back to negligence on the part of Royal Caribbean.
