The ongoing investigation of how and why the Costa Concordia cruise ship sank saw fresh evidence today as recorded conversations were released.
“Madonna, what have I done?” was the response from Captain Francesco Schettino as the ship hit the reef that eventually sank the vessel.
Prosecutors and marine experts have accused the captain of deliberately misleading the Coast Guard and officials from his own company as to the true extent of the Jan 13 disaster, which led to the deaths of 32 people, including a five year old girl.
This emerging information could impact related cases as cruise ship injury lawyers and maritime attorneys continue to represent those affected by the accident.
