Italian Cruise Ship Disaster

RTR2WAPI
Top Pictures - 05 Feb 2015
An Italian prosecutor asked a court to sentence the captain of the Costa Concordia cruise liner to more than 26 years in jail for his role in the 2012 disaster that killed 32 people. Francesco Schettino was the commander of the vessel, a floating hotel as long as three football pitches, when it came too close to shore and hit rocks off the Tuscan holiday island of Giglio. The defence is expected to respond in court starting 9 February, with a verdict expected thereafter.

The wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise liner is set to be refloated next week, to be towed away from the Italian island of Giglio where it ran aground and capsized two and a half years ago, the group organising the removal said last week. Schettino is on trial accused of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship. Thirty-two people died in the catastrophe. REUTERS/Remo Casilli (ITALY - Tags: DISASTER MARITIME CRIME LAW)

Tourists on the Tuscan coast were taking part in a rather macabre form of sightseeing -- taking boat trips to view the wreckage of shipwrecked cruise liner Costa Concordia, where 32 people lost their lives after it hit rocks on January 13.

The cruise liner Costa Concordia is seen during the "parbuckling" operation outside Giglio harbour
The cruise liner Costa Concordia is seen during the "parbuckling" operation outside Giglio harbour January 11, 2014. Thirty massive tanks filled with air will lift the hulk of the Costa Concordia off the seabed in June so it can be towed away from the Italian island of Giglio where it capsized two years ago, officials said on Friday. The 114,500-tonne vessel hit rocks on Jan. 13, 2012, killing 32 people. It was hauled upright in a complex "parbuckling" operation in September but still rests where it capsized, just outside the holiday island's small port. Refloating the Concordia will be one more phase in the largest maritime salvage in history. Where the ship will be dismantled - the final step - has yet to be decided.

The massive hulk of the Costa Concordia is nearly ready to be towed away from the Italian island where it struck a rock and capsized two-and-a-half years ago, killing 32 people, officials said on Sunday. The 114,500-tonne Concordia has been slowly lifted from the sea floor since Monday, when salvagers began pumping air into 30 large metal boxes, or sponsons, attached around the hull. A convoy of 14 vessels will then tow the Concordia to a port near Genoa, where it will be broken up for scrap, completing one of the biggest maritime salvage operations in history.

The trial of the captain of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, which capsized off Italy's coast last year killing 32 people, resumes on Wednesday after it was delayed by a lawyers' strike earlier this month. The trial will examine one of the most dramatic marine accidents in recent Italian history, when the huge liner struck a rock outside the port of Giglio in January 2012 and keeled over on to its side, setting off a chaotic night-time evacuation of more than 4,000 passengers and crew. Schettino, accused of abandoning ship before all crew and passengers had been rescued, faces charges including manslaughter and causing the loss of his ship, which still rests on its side in the Tuscan port.

The Costa Concordia cruise ship that ran aground off the west coast of Italy, at Giglio island is seen, January 17, 2012. Italian divers and earthquake rescue veterans are braving chill waters, ships decks that are now sheer cliffs and the peril of waves sending heavy furniture crashing on top of them to scour a half-sunken super-liner for survivors and, more likely, bodies. Having resorted in despair to blasting their way through the pitch-dark maze of debris, luxury cabins and leisure facilities that is the badly listing hulk of the seagoing pleasure palace, they found five more dead aboard the Costa Concordia on Tuesday, making 11 in all.
