Shipwrecked Costa Concordia Pulled Vertical [VIDEO]
Engineers today say their effort to pull the Costa Concordia cruise ship completely upright was a success. It was a 19-hour operation to wrench it from it’s side off Tuscany.
The remarkable salvage project now allows for a renewed search for two bodies that were never recovered from the 32 people killed in last year’s shipwreck. The Concordia will eventually be towed away.
The ship’s submerged side suffered significant damage during the 20 months it bore the weight of the massive 1,000 foot long vessel on the jagged reef. Check ou the time-lapse video of the salvage of the Concordia.
