Costa Concordia cruise ship accident in Italy


At least six people are dead after the Costa Concordia hit rock off the Tuscan coast around 9:30pm on Saturday. The Concordia quickly started to take on water and began to list badly. It is believed the captain decided to head for the harbor of Giglio. Once near the shore and in shallow water, the wash from the Concordia may have been deflected back toward the hull, causing it to roll. It has settled at a 90° angle on its starboard side.
