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.
