More Photos from the Wreck of the Costa Concordia

Here are some amazing photos of the Coast Concordia. It has been hard to grasp the size of this ship from most of the pictures I’ve seen, and the news coverage on TV and the internet. However, in a few of these photos, the rescuers look like tiny miniatures when photographed next to sections of the ship. These are some truly incredible pictures.

Clicking on a thumbnail will bring up the photo in full size and you may then toggle through at your own pace.     


Details:  On the night of Friday, January 13, the luxury cruise ship Costa Concordia, with more than 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members on board, struck a reef, keeled over, and partially sank off Isola del Giglio, Italy. Six people are now confirmed dead, including two French passengers and one Peruvian crew member, apparently after jumping into the chilly Mediterranean waters after the wreck. Fourteen more people still remain missing, as search and rescue teams continue their efforts to find survivors. The incident occurred only hours into the cruise, and passengers had not yet undergone any lifeboat drills — that plus the severe list of the ship made evacuation chaotic and frightening. Captain Francesco Schettino has been arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship. Gathered here are images of the Costa Concordia, as efforts are still underway to find the fourteen passengers that remain missing.
