Kimberly Wiegand, the mother of Chloe, an 18-month-old toddler who died on a Royal Caribbean International cruise ship after falling from the ship's 11th floor , said in an interview with NBC News that she blames Royal Caribbean for the incident.
Chloe fell from a window in a children's play area that had been opened, NBC News reported.
