Comments on: Costa Concordia: An incredible tragedy What makes a great picture? Thu, 18 Aug 2016 11:13:37 +0000 hourly 1 By: Laurelp Sat, 22 Dec 2012 03:23:15 +0000 I am in the process of writing a book about the Costa Concordia
disaster and its effects on the people of Giglio Island. They are
truly some of the forgotten heroes of this story. Not only did they
save the lives of over 4,200 people that night, but they opened their
homes, gave away their belongings, never asked for anything in return,
and they still are forced to suffer with the ship’s presence. I have
spent time with these people in their homes and at their dinner
tables. I am looking forward to bringing light to an entire different
side to this horrible tragedy. I appreciate your compassion in your post.

These latest photos show that the ship seems to be stationery now and sunk as deep is it is going to sink. Last week, a photo on this site showed a rock still embedded in the hull. But that edge is now underwater too, apparently?

It’s no wonder there hadn’t had an evacuation drill before the accident. The ship had only been out of port for 30 minutes. I really don’t think the liner should use the Captain as a whipping boy. This whole country was hurt by “irrational exuberance”.
