2012: Costa Concordia disaster

On Jan. 13, 2012, Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia struck rocks off the coast of Giglio Island and capsized with 1,023 crew members and 3,206 passengers aboard. The collision caused a 174-foot tear in the port side that flooded the engine room and other lower compartments. 32 people lost their lives and Capt. Francesco Schettino was later charged with multiple crimes, including manslaughter and lying to authorities.
