The Italian Job
About ten days ago the Italian cruise liner Costa Concordia ran into some serious trouble after it sailed to close to the shore. The death toll continues to mount. No doubt it would’ve been every passengers nightmare to hear the call to evacuate the vessel.
I watched an interview with one of the many survivors. She was an employee who worked as a magicians assistant and was in a box when the first jolt was felt. The thing that became quite apparent from her account was the struggle to get off the ship and the desire to live. Nothing else mattered at that moment except getting to the shore and being reunited with loved ones.
No doubt more tales of the struggle to survive will emerge and even more finger-pointing and the blame game between the captain and owners of the ship. Searching of the ship will continue with many still unaccounted for!
