article imageVideo: Costa Concordia revisited by divers

By Anne Sewell     Jul 5, 2014 in World
Eerie video footage of divers, swimming around in the sunken wreckage of the Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia, has now been released.
Divers, exploring the wreckage of the Costa Concordia sunken cruise ship, recently took rather eerie video footage of their progress.
First we see the divers heading for the overturned cruise ship. Then we see them dive and follow their progress along the deck of the ship, picking up the remains of a water-soaked book. There appears to be the remains of life jackets, caught on the side of the ship, as they pass.
They then enter the interior of the ship and we see a vase of artificial flowers, still intact and standing to attention, possibly nailed down in case of rough seas. Following this, we see a lounge and bar area, with water-soaked furniture and tables. The camera shows more colorful interior features of the fated cruise ship before fading away.
It is hard to imagine that this was once a luxury cruise ship, with passengers enjoying their voyage, the food and the entertainment.
The Costa Concordia was wrecked off the coast of Isola del Giglio in Italy on January 13, 2012 and has been hanging around ever since.
According to Wikipedia, of the 3,229 passengers and 1,023 crew known to have been aboard, 32 regrettably died. The ship's captain, Francesco Schettino, is on trial for manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and for abandoning the ship.
Efforts are currently underway to salvage the remains of the ship. Refloating will reportedly be complete within the next 10 days.
