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

Underwater robbers?? What?!

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

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:
