The one-year-old daughter of an Indiana police officer died on Sunday after falling from a Royal Caribbean cruise shop docked in Puerto Rico.
The little girl, who was traveling with her grandparents and parents, was playing with her grandfather on the pool level of the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas when she fell from a window.
Officials say the man was likely playing when he held his one-year-old granddaughter at the open window of the cruise ship. The girl fell 11 stories onto the pavement and died.
The young girl was the daughter of a South Bend police officer, according to the department.
"The South Bend Police Department offers its sincerest condolences to Officer Alan Wiegand and his family during this difficult time following the tragic loss of their child while in Puerto Rico," the department said in a statement. "The department asks the community to pray for the entire Wiegand family as they grieve and to respect their privacy."
