Crew members missing in cruise wreckage

Posted on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 at 3:26 pm    

At least four crew members on board the Costa Condordia that capsized Friday night are still missing, bringing the total missing to 25.

Italian rescue workers recovered five more bodies today, bringing the death toll to 11. However, it has not been confirmed whether the bodies were of passengers or crew members.

At least 60 individuals were injured when the luxury cruise liner crashed into the rocky ocean floor late last week, causing it to fill with water and capsize. About 3,200 passengers were on board with around 1,000 crew members. The captain of the ship is currently under house arrested and could be facing charges of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck, and leaving before everyone was evacuated.

The thoughts of lawyer Pete Leehey is with all those affected by this tragic event. For more information about the wreck, click here.
