Watch the Wrecked Costa Concordia Tilted Up in Riveting Time-Lapse Video
The Costa Concordia, the Italian cruise ship that crashed and resulted in the death of 32 people last year, was tipped upright on Monday.
The process was slated to take a maximum of 12 hours, but it wound up lasting 19. This video shows a time-lapse glimpse into the work.
What’s next for the Concordia? It will eventually be brought to port where parts will be scrapped. Even if she could be fixed, nobody would want to sail on a ship that endured such a terrifying ordeal. Her “stigma” would scare away potential cruisers.
