Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

Three more bodies have been recovered and identified from the wreck of the Costa Concordia, bringing the total number of deaths to 28.

There are still four passengers unaccounted for … however, little hope remains that they will be found alive.

Horrific.

This ship has remained half-submerged on it's side near the port of Giglio since the tragic events of January 14th, 2012.

Our hearts go out to those who’ve lost loved ones in this disastrous experience.

Underwater Thieves Rob Capsized Cruise Ship!

Costa Concordia Bell Stolen

Underwater robbers?? What?!

After the cruise ship Costa Concordia capsized off the Italian island of Giglio in January, the Italian coastguard has held the ship under close 24-hour surveillance — 26 feet under water!

This, however, did not stop a couple thieves who somehow got THROUGH the laser security systems and stole the ship’s bell straight from its deck!

The mayor of the island isn't TOO concerned, though, stating:

Costa Concordia Survivors Being Offered $14,400 Each In Compensation

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

costa concordia passengers to receive compensation

Sounds like they're gonna have to up that amount if they're trying to avoid lawsuits!

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

Then we heard that the ship's captain Francesco Schettino was being held in jail for abandoning ship…and were disgusted to hear that the despicable man was trying to claim that he ACCIDENTALLY abandoned the ship! Boo!

Now, we've learned that Costa Cruises is offering survivors of the cruise ship disaster a lump sum of $14,400 (11,000 euros) each in compensation, which is meant to cover the following:

Seriously?!?!? Costa Concordia Captain Claims He 'Fell' Into A Lifeboat!

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:

Costa Concordia's Captain In Jail For Disobeying Orders And Abandoning Ship

costa concordia captain in jail

We continue to be disturbed by this story.

On Saturday, we were sad to report that a cruise ship carrying 4,000+ people ran aground off the coast of Italy. Following the evacuation, we heard that at least 50 people hadn't been accounted for, and that 3 people had been confirmed dead.

We had also heard that some passengers were accusing the crew of failing to give them instructions on how to evacuate the ship.

Then yesterday, we learned that
