costa concordia captain claims he fell into lifeboat

Sorry captain, but we're having a bit of trouble buying this!

To recap - on Saturday, we heard the upsetting news that a cruise ship carrying 4,000+ people ran aground off the coast of Italy.

Then on Monday we heard that a previously halted search for survivors had resumed AND we heard that "human error" was being cited as the cause for the tragic event.

THEN yesterday, we learned that the ship's captain Francesco Schettino was being held in jail for "manslaughter, shipwreck, and abandoning a ship when passengers were still on board." We also heard that the official death toll had reached 11 people. Ugh.

Now, the captain is claiming that he ACCIDENTALLY abandoned the ship! Here's what he had to say about it during a hearing yesterday:

"The passengers were pouring on to the decks, taking the lifeboats by assault."

"I didn't even have a life jacket because I had given it to one of the passengers. I was trying to get people to get into the boats in an orderly fashion. Suddenly, since the ship was at a 60-70° angle, I tripped and I ended up in one of the boats. That's how I found myself in the lifeboat."

"Suspended there, I was unable to lower the boat into the sea, because the space was blocked by other boats in the water."

What do U think? Did the captain REALLY fall into a lifeboat?????????

    If he wasn't irresponsible the accident wouldn't happen. Stupid and a chicken.

    He's an idiot; which begs the question, " how did he pass the licensing exam and get certified?"

    Maledetto!

    He accidentally fell into a lifeboat the way I accidentally fell onto my husband and got pregnant.

    How convenient!!!! fell into a lifeboat, why not fell into the sea? Who will believe his stupid story like that? Maybe one day we will read a news that his certificate actually is a fake certificate, LOL.
