Italians launch rescue bid after cruise liner runs aground

Post by Guest on Sat Jan 14, 2012 10:26 am

At least three people are reported dead and more than 4,000 are being evacuated after the Costa Concordia ran aground.

A luxury cruise ship has run aground off the coast of Tuscany, gashing open the hull and forcing some 4,200 people aboard to evacuate on lifeboats to a nearby island early on Saturday. At least three were dead, the Italian coast guard said.

There were at least three more feared dead, and helicopters were working to pluck to safety some 50 people still trapped aboard the badly listing Costa Concordia, said Coast Guard Commander Francesco Paolillo.

Paolillo said it wasn't known if the dead were passengers or crew, nor were the nationalities of the victims immediately known. It is understood there were several British passengers on board.

The Italian news agency ANSA reported that some people had jumped overboard in the scramble to evacuate the ship, which had just begun a Mediterranean cruise.

The evacuees were taking refuge in schools, hotels, and a church on the tiny Tuscan island of Giglio, a popular vacation isle about 18 miles (25 kilometres) off Italy's central west coast.

ANSA quoted two Italian journalists who happened to be among the passengers taking the Mediterranean cruise as saying the accident happened during dinner hour.

"We were dining when the lights went out, and suddenly we heard a bang and the dishes fell to the floor," ANSA quoted one of the journalist-passengers, Luciano Castro, as saying." "It was like a scene from the Titanic," another passenger aboard, journalist Mara Parmegiani, told ANSA.

Paolillo said the exact dynamics of the accident were still unclear, but that the first alarm went off about 10:30pm (2130 GMT), about three hours after the Concordia had begun its voyage from the port of Civitavecchia, enroute to its first port of call, Savona, in northwestern Italy.

The coast guard official, speaking from the port captain's office in the Tuscan port of Livorno, said the vessel "hit an obstacle" - it wasn't clear if it might have hit a rocky reef in the waters off Giglio - "ripping a gash 50 metres (165 feet) across" on the left side of the ship, and started taking on water.

The cruise liner's captain then tried to steer his ship toward shallow waters, near Giglio's small port, to make evacuation by lifeboat easier. But after the ship started listing badly onto its right side, lifeboat evacuation was no longer feasible, Paolillo said.

Five helicopters, from the coast guard, navy and air force, were taking turns airlifting survivors still aboard and ferrying them to safely. A Coast guard member was airlifted to the vessel to help people get aboard a small basket so they could be hoisted up to the helicopter, said Captain Cosimo Nicastro, another Coast Guard official.

A statement from Costa Cruises, the company that runs the ship, confirmed that the evacuation of the 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew had begun, "but the position of the ship, which is worsening, is making more difficult the last part of the evacuation."

Costa Cruises' statement did not mention any casualties, and said it had not yet determined the cause of the problem.

Costa Cruises said the Costa Concordia was sailing on a cruise across the Mediterranean Sea, starting from Civitavecchia with scheduled calls to Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Cagliari and Palermo.

It said about 1,000 Italian passengers were onboard, as well as more than 500 Germans, about 160 French and about 1,000 crew members.

They are big ships, I saw one, Costa Lotta, the name made me laugh, in the harbour in Funchal, Maderia. I don't suppose any of the passengers and crew of that one are laughing poor things, must have been terrifying.

An excellent name Sassy Very Happy x

You are right they are huge. Never fancied a cruise, I'm always in to much of a hurry to get where I'm going plus Titanic put me off No

Hopefully a major disaster will have been avoided, this could have been so much worse Sad

Costa Cruises' statement did not mention any casualties, and said it had not yet determined the cause of the problem.

hmm it ran aground, that was the problem, ships often sink/capsize if you aim them at rocks.

no lighthouse there was there?

Was listening on the radio, they said they cannot understand why a modern ship holed so easily and listed so quickly, which meant that a lot of the life boats could not be launched. Very scarey!

Dozens Missing After Cruise Ship Capsizes

Post by Guest on Sat Jan 14, 2012 8:21 pm

Three people have died and up to 70 more are missing after a cruise ship carrying thousands of passengers, including British holidaymakers, ran aground off Italy's coast.

The head of cruise company Costa, Gianni Onorato, said the vessel "hit a rock" and pictures showed a massive gash in the Costa Concordia's hull more than 150ft (45m) long.
There was a huge rock embedded in the side of the ship towards the stern and the liner was on its side.
The dead have reportedly been identified as two French passengers and one Peruvian crewman, according to AP.
One of the victims was a man aged in his 70s who is thought to have died of a heart attack caused by the shock of the icy water when he dived in during the chaos.
A coastguard official said the 70 people missing may be trapped inside "the belly of the ship".
Costa Cruises told Sky News the 37 Britons onboard - 25 passengers and 12 crew members, mainly entertainers - were rescued.
A major rescue operation was launched after the liner began sinking near the island of Giglio, off the Tuscan coast, late on Friday - just two hours after it began its voyage.
It was easier for people to jump into the sea because we were on the same level as that water so some people pretty much just decided to swim as they were not able to get on the lifeboats.

Five helicopters and nearby ships plucked people to safety after they became trapped on the ship when it listed so badly they could not launch lifeboats.
Divers were also called in to search the 290m-long ship for missing passengers.
Officials confirmed three bodies had been retrieved from the sea and warned the death toll could rise.
Fire services spokesman Luca Cari said rescue efforts were continuing as dozens of the 4,234 people on the ship at the time still unaccounted for.
"We have about 40 men at work and we're expecting specialist diving teams to arrive to check all the interior spaces of the ship," he said.
"We don't rule out the possibility that more people will be lost."

A further 14 people were injured, mostly suffering bruises, authorities said.
The ship's captain is reportedly being questioned by authorities.
Costa chief executive Mr Onorato said after the liner hit a rock the captain "decided to bring the ship to safety before ordering its evacuation".
He added: "Unfortunately, the fast tilting of the vessel interrupted the evacuation by the use of lifeboats.
"That's when events started escalating and that required the Italian coast guard to intervene, this and the rescue operations were handed over to the authorities."
Earlier, a harbour master said the ship started taking on water after it "hit an obstacle", "ripping a gash 50m (160ft) across" on the left side.
Coastguard official Cmdr Francesco Paolillo said the cruise liner's captain responded by trying to steer the ship toward shallow waters near Giglio's small port to make the evacuation easier.
As the ship began to list heavily to one side, coastguards were immediately dispatched to the scene while terrified passengers were ordered to put on life vests and man lifeboats.
Some people reportedly jumped into the cold waters in the scramble to escape.
The Costa Concordia Ship
:: Built in 2006
:: 280m long and 36m wide
:: Capacity to hold 3,700 passengers and 1,100 crew
:: Four swimming pools, five jacuzzis, seven restaurants, 13 luxury bars, three dance clubs and a cinema.


Passenger Luciano Castro told Italian media of the horror that unfolded when the ship ran aground.
''We were having dinner when all of a sudden the lights went out," he said. "It seemed as if the ship struck something and then we heard a loud bang and everything fell to the floor.
''The captain immediately came on the tannoy and said that there had been an electrical fault but it seemed very strange as the ship almost immediately began to list to one side. The glasses just slid off the table.
''We were then told to put on our life vests and head to the lifeboats just to be safe but there was a real panic onboard you could see it in the faces of the people especially those with young families.
''Then a few minutes later there were seven whistles which meant everyone had to get in the lifeboats.''
SHIP EMPLOYEE'S DAD TELLS OF DAUGHTER'S RESCUE

Another passenger Mara Parmegiani said: ''It was just like something out of the Titanic. You could tell straight away that the ship had hit something and no way was it an electrical fault."
The Costa Concordia had left the port of Civitavecchia at 7pm local time on Friday and was sailing to Savona, its first port of call, when disaster struck at around 9pm.
Costa Cruises confirmed that about 3,200 passengers - 52 reportedly children under the age of six - were onboard along with around 1,000 crew members.
A webcam on the company's website showed the position of the ship with a caption reading: ''Data transmission is temporarily suspended.''
Officials initially said the liner was listing at an angle of 20 degrees but it was not in danger of sinking. Hours later and it was on an 80 degree angle, with half the ship submerged under water.

This is terrible and it looks like the death toll will rise.

That has literally made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end! Perhaps there will be an air pocket and they can save some. How the hell did a 5 year old ship just sink! They are supposed to have double hulls and safety doors and all kinds of things.

Do I don't think so. When you drown, because we came from water, all the oxygen rushes to your brain, so your brain keeps going after you stop breathing. I don't like the thought of that! Anyway, sorry to cut and run, going to watch a film xx

They know about the oxygen going to your brain, that is why people have been resuscitated who have been underwater quite a while.

UPDATE




Captain Held After Cruise Ship Capsizes
.

9:38pm UK, Saturday January 14, 2012

Nick Pisa, in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy

The captain and first officer of a cruise liner that ran aground off the coast of Italy are being held on suspicion of multiple manslaughter and abandoning ship while passengers were still in danger.
Three people are known to have died and 40 others are still unaccounted for after the ship, which was carrying thousands of passengers, including British holidaymakers, apparently struck a rock.

Survivors have described chaotic scenes "like something out of the Titanic" as the Costa Concordia tilted and started to sink.

Pictures showed a massive gash in the hull more than 150ft (45m) long. There was a huge rock embedded in the side and the liner was on its side.

The dead have reportedly been identified as two French passengers and one Peruvian crewman, according to AP.

One of the victims was a man aged in his 70s who is thought to have died of a heart attack caused by the shock of the icy water when he dived in during the chaos.

A further 14 people were injured, mostly suffering bruises, authorities said.



Passengers arrive at Porto Santo Stefano on the mainland after the incident

Divers searched the vessel's submerged part as a coastguard official said some people missing may be trapped inside "the belly of the ship".

Costa Cruises told Sky News the 37 Britons onboard - 25 passengers and 12 crew members, mainly entertainers - were rescued.

But the UK ambassador to Italy, Christopher Prentice, said officials have not yet confirmed the whereabouts of all British citizens.

A major rescue operation was launched after the liner, which was carrying 4,234 people, began sinking near the island of Giglio, off the Tuscan coast, late on Friday - just two hours after it started its voyage.



The ship had several scheduled stops planned in southern Europe

The captain, Francesco Schettino, then gave the order to abandon the 290m-long ship with seven short whistles.

Maritime officials were questioning Capt. Schettino about the incident as it emerged he was at least four miles off course.

Local prosecutor Francesco Verusio confirmed the captain and the ship's first officer Ciro Ambrosio had both been detained in custody.

Mr Verusio added that the Costa Concordia had approached Giglio "the wrong way" and had struck a reef on its left hand side causing it to take in an "enormous amount of water in a matter of minutes".


Skystrator: Explaining The Cruise Ship Tragedy
Sources in the prosecutor's office said the 52-year-old captain from Naples had abandoned the ship at ''around 23.30'' while the last passengers were not taken to safety until 3am the following morning.

There have been claims from furious passengers that the evacuation was "chaotic" and carried out amid scenes of panic with some comparing it to the Titanic - whose 100 year anniversary is in three months' time.

Capt. Schettino told maritime investigators that charts showed he was in waters deep enough to navigate and that he had struck an unidentified rocky outcrop of the island.

He said once he realised the extent of the damage he immediately tried to change route and head for the safety of Giglio harbour.

However within minutes, the Costa Concordia began to list and a few hours later it was virtually on its side.

Five helicopters and nearby ships plucked people to safety after they became trapped on the ship when it listed so badly they could not launch lifeboats.

Chief executive of Costa Cruises, Gianni Onorato, said the liner hit a rock and then the captain "decided to bring the ship to safety before ordering its evacuation".

He added: "Unfortunately, the fast tilting of the vessel interrupted the evacuation by the use of lifeboats.

"That's when events started escalating and that required the Italian coast guard to intervene, this and the rescue operations were handed over to the authorities."


The Costa Concordia Ship
:: Built in 2006

:: 280m long and 36m wide

:: Capacity to hold 3,700 passengers and 1,100 crew

:: Four swimming pools, five jacuzzis, seven restaurants, 13 luxury bars, three dance clubs and a cinema.





As the ship began to list heavily to one side, coastguards were immediately dispatched to the scene while terrified passengers were ordered to put on lifejackets and man lifeboats.

Helicopters, coastguard vessels and passing ships were used in the evacuation but many people jumped into the icy seas once the order to abandon had been sounded and some were injured after spending several minutes in the water.

One Italian passenger, who would only give her name as Silvano who was on board with her boyfriend Ignazio, said: "There was just complete and utter chaos and panic. No-one from the crew seemed to know what they were doing. It was just like something from the Titanic.

"Some of the crew were telling us to go back to our cabins while others were saying go to the lifeboats - it was obvious we were in serious trouble because we heard a terrible scraping noise, the lights flickered and then came back on again.

"At first, there was a message to say it was an electrical fault but almost immediately the ship started to lean to one side and you could tell we were in serious trouble. We were in the restaurant and everything just started sliding off the tables.


Ship Employee's Dad Tells Of Daughter's Rescue
"We couldn't believe our eyes. There was just utter chaos people were rushing about and pushing each other in a panic. Children were crying and no-one seemed to know what was happening. We got into a lifeboat and were taken to Giglio but even there things were not much better as no-one gave us a hot drink or a blanker for ages."

Another passenger Antonietta Simboli, from Latina near Rome, said: "We were sitting at our dinner table when there was a loud bang and things just flew off the table.

"The lights went off and then came back on again and then everyone just started scrambling over each other to try and get a life vest or to the life boats. People were trampling over each other and children in the chaos."


It was easier for people to jump into the sea because we were on the same level as that water so some people pretty much just decided to swim as they were not able to get on the lifeboats.

Read survivors' stories
The Costa Concordia had left the port of Civitavecchia at 7pm local time on Friday and was sailing to Savona, its first port of call, when disaster struck at around 9pm.

Costa Cruises confirmed that about 3,200 passengers - 52 reportedly children under the age of six - were onboard along with around 1,000 crew members.

Philip Metcalfe, the British father of one of the ship's crew, told Sky News how he was relieved to hear from his daughter, who is a dancer onboard, to say she was OK.

He said she had described "pretty chaotic" scenes as people went into a panic - and how she had to use a fire hose to escape.

Many of the passengers and crew were taken to the mainland port of Porto Santo Stefano where they are staying in schools, churches and other public buildings.

Survivors far outnumbered Giglio's 1,500 residents, and island Mayor Sergio Ortelli issued an appeal for islanders - "anyone with a roof" - to open their homes to shelter the evacuees.

Update:

Twelfth Body Found As Captain Admits Mistake
6:11pm UK, Saturday January 21, 2012

Nick Pisa in Giglio, Italy

The body of a woman wearing a life jacket has been found on the Costa Concordia amid revelations the ship's captain admitted: "I messed up".
The woman's body was found on the fourth deck of the wrecked cruise liner near a muster area towards the rear of the ship this afternoon. Her identity has not yet been confirmed.

Her body brings the death toll to 12. Twenty people are still missing on board after the disaster.

The tragic discovery was made as it emerged that Capt Francesco Schettino made a frantic call 23 minutes after he had struck rocks on the night of January 13.

As terrified passengers began asking what had happened after the ship plunged briefly into darkness, Schettino called Costa Cruises operations manager Roberto Ferrarini in Genoa and told him: ''I messed up. We have touched the bottom (of the sea)."


I messed up. We have touched the bottom (of the sea). I am telling you the truth. We sailed past Giglio and we took a hit.

Capt Francesco Schettino
According to judicial documents which form part of the probe against him, Schettino continued: "I am telling you the truth. We sailed past Giglio and we took a hit.''

It also emerged today that a transcript of a call between Schettino and the Livorno harbourmaster recorded the captain vowing he would be the only person to stay on the ship.

It is not known at what time the call took place. In it, the harbourmaster asks: "Is everyone going to abandon the ship or is someone going to stay there?"

Schettino, according to the transcript, responds: "I'm going to stay here... I'm the only one who will stay here."

The captain, who is accused of abandoning ship before all the passengers could be evacuated, has claimed he tripped and fell into a lifeboat.

In the judicial documents he described the moment of impact, saying: ''All of a sudden I saw foam on the surface of the water off the bow of the ship. I knew immediately it was a reef that had not shown up on the radar.''

The ship was travelling at 16 knots. Schettino, the documents said, ordered the wheel to be turned ''full to the right'' and called for the engines to be thrown in ''full reverse'', but it was too late.

Schettino told investigating judge Valeria Montesarchio how after he had crashed into the rocks - known as Le Scole - he had sent two senior officers down to the engine room.

They reported that it was flooded and water was pouring in.

Schettino is currently is under house arrest near Naples, facing charges of manslaughter and abandoning ship after he allegedly left the liner before hundreds of passengers.



Captain Francesco Schettino and the wrecked Costa Concordia

In the documents, Schettino confirmed that just half an hour before last week's tragedy, he had dined in the ship's exclusive Club restaurant along with Moldovan blonde cruise ship rep Domnica Cermortan, 25.

At the time of the impact last Friday at 21.42, Schettino said that Domnica was ''in a side room'' close to the bridge.

The revelations came as divers resumed their search for the 20 people still missing on board the ship.

Divers used explosives to blast holes in the ship, creating more entry - and escape - routes.

Large pieces of wreckage from where the ship first hit the rocks were also found as Italian officials confirmed light fuel has begun leaking into the pristine Tuscan waters surrounding the ship.

On Friday, Schettino was accused by the liner owner's CEO of misleading the company and crew after hitting the rocks.



A diver with a large piece of wreckage from the Costa Concordia

CEO Pierluigi Foschi told Italian state TV that the company spoke to the captain at 10.05pm local time, some 20 minutes after the ship ran aground on January 13.

He said they could not offer proper assistance because the captain's decription "did not correspond to the truth".

Schettino said only that he had "problems" on board - but did not mention hitting a reef.

Likewise, Mr Foschi said crew members were not informed of the gravity of the situation.

Passenger video shown on Italian TV indicates crew members telling the 4,200 passengers on board the ship to go to their cabins as late as 10.25pm.

The abandon ship alarm sounded just before 11pm.

"That's because they also did not receive correct information on the gravity of the situation," Mr Foschi said.

Mr Foschi's comments are the latest showing the chaos and miscommunication with authorities on land as the emergency unfolded.

An audiotape of the Concordia's first contact with maritime authorities has a Concordia officer repeatedly replying that the ship had experienced a blackout - even though it had hit the reef more than half an hour earlier.

Italian media reported the officer on the call was Schettino.


They (the crew members) also did not receive correct information on the gravity of the situation.

CEO Pierluigi Foschi
Costa Crociere SpA, which offered support to the captain in the hours after the emergency, has now turned its back on him.

Costa has suspended Schettino, announced it is no longer paying his legal fees and has signed on as a civil party in the prosecution.

The move positions it as an injured party and would allow it to seek damages in the case of a guilty verdict.

New underwater images of divers are emerging showing them with large hunks of twisted metal torn from the ship when it struck the reef.

The stricken liner has been lying on its side near the port of Giglio Island ever since.

The slight movements registered by sensors placed on board the ship may just be vibrations as the ship settles on the rocks.

Salvage experts suggest it could be because of pockets of air gradually escaping.

But the greater fear is that the massive ocean liner is slowly slipping off the reef.

I suppose that he may have panicked but if that's the case he should have never been given the responsibility of being Captain anyway No

It's the sort of reaction you expect from a 10 year old, not a grown man. People have died, there will be a massive investigation and rightly so. Not owning up to his mistake at the outset makes things ten times worse Evil or Very Mad
