The ship hit bottom on a sand bar and the Captain took the decision to drive her ashore before she started to list.

Unfortunately the COSTA CONCORDIA was not born under a brilliant star
1)in her launch the champagne bottle not braking!!!!!
2)in 2008 a great danger in bow in stormy wind at palermo
3)the fact of yesterday
The destinty give a hand in our life!!!!!

if that had been suggested initially, instead of just "already a thread about it"...
a little bit of manners go a long way

found out this morning that the Italians have rescued two Koreans alive from a cabin on the ship and made contact with another survivor

the name Concordia is not very lucky either...

do you remember sinking of Concordia "class afloat" training sailing vessel off South American shores a year or two ago ?...
despite using "polsteam" for my nick I have NO personal (professional) or business connections with the company of the same name
