Actually divers risk their life....I think that accidents like this take more lifes after their sinking rather than while they're sinking...What do you say?  :-\

It's a documentary from a British TV channel. You can watch it here: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-sinking-of-the-concordia-caught-on-camera/4od (Which is blocked in my country)

Costa Concordia Refloating update
« Reply #59 on: July 14, 2014, 14:29:42 »

The Costa Concordia is now afloat!

As of midday apparently she was 1m from the artificial seabed :thumbs: One more metre to go and she will be towed 30m east before (I guess) the refloating will continue :)

The CC now appears to be a little higher than I saw yesterday. So far so good.  :)

Seems to be SUCH A MINOR DISASTER cuz the ship didnt actually sink. I cannot belive this disaster even happened with AND people actually died. There were so many advanced tech on that ship that makes the ship basically unsinkable. So shocked at the captains cowardness!!!

I read that they found some bones and probably they belong to Russel Rebello...he was a waiter on the ship and the only person who is/was missing

16 years for the Captain - should it have been more? I'm not sure, swaying towards the argument that it should have been more though  :P

16 years for acting like an idiot.
I think it's a reasonable sentence. His mistake caused deaths and a multi million dollar loss, but at least it wasn't on purpose, 'cause that would have made the situation even worse. Nonetheless, he didn't take responsibility where he should have taken it. If he acted like a real captain and didn't leave the ship and actually coördinated a proper evacuation he would have gone off with a lower sentence much easier, because most likely way less people would have died.

Unsinkable ship don't  exist. If watertight doors below the waterline are left open, the ship will sink when the hull gets damaged by a collision or grounding.

I have spent many years at sea on the surface and below. I believe that there is only one person to blame and that is the captain. The man should never have gone that close in the first place. It was not the first time that he has been through that stretch of water and to cap it all the man is a coward of the 1st degree. He made that decission to go that close to shore like he made the decission to leave the ship when he did. Sixteen years is not enough.
