Two Elderly Bodies Found in Ship

The bodies of two elderly people were found Sunday in the belly of the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that ran aground off the Italian coast late Friday, bringing the death toll to at least five. More than a dozen people are still unaccounted for. The two dead were recovered from the ship’s restaurant, still wearing their life jackets. The captain of the ship, who’s been arrested, insisted that the rocks the ship hit were not marked on his map, but a Coast Guard spokesman disputed the claim, saying the waters were well mapped. “We know where the ship was. We know it was too close to the island ... We don’t know why.”
