Five bodies recovered from Costa Concordia

Posted under Rhinelander personal injury attorneys

Divers recovered five more bodies on Thursday of passengers who were on board the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that capsized off the Italian coast earlier this year. Two more people are still unaccounted for, including an elderly American couple.

The discovery of the five passengers has brought the death toll to 30. At least 4,200 passengers and crew members were on board when the ship crashed on rocks close to shore.

Francesco Schettino, the captain of the ship, was arrested the day after the wreck and charged with manslaughter and evacuating before all passengers and crew were evacuated. He has been under house arrested since January.
