Costa Concordia cruise disaster
The cruise ship 'Costa Concordia' ran aground and keeled over off the Isola del Giglio after hitting underwater rocks on January 13. The owner of the luxury liner that ran aground off the coast of Italy, killing at least six people, said its captain had made "errors of judgment" as the search continued for the missing. The ship was on a cruise in the Mediterranean, leaving from Savona with planned stops in Civitavecchia, Palermo, Cagliari, Palma, Barcelona and Marseille," the company said.
