Sixth Body Found in Shipwreck

Italian news reported Monday that a sixth body had been found in the wreckage of the Costa Concordia, leaving 14 people still missing.Costa Cruises, the owner of the Costa Concordia, said Sunday that it's likely that "significant human error" caused the deadly shipwreck. The route of the vessel appears to have been too close to the shore, and in handling the emergency, the captain appears not to have followed standard Costa procedures." Costa Concordia captain Francesco Schettino spoke on Italian television Sunday to defend his reaction in the deadly shipwreck—and he insisted none of the rocks had been detected. Meanwhile, some passengers said Sunday that Schettino was drinking in the bar the night before taking control of the crash. Schettino and the ship’s first mate have been charged with manslaughter and abandoning ship.
