I am sure most of you have heard about it by now..the cruise ship that went down near Italy, but I heard on the radio this morning a recorded call between the Captain and The coast guard and felt sick! I understand he was scared, but it was HIS job to keep it together and to get those people off the ship. I think that the fact that they are charging him with manslaughter is good! It's been said that the CHEF'S and WAITERS were the ones helping passengers off the boat!!
Not only that, but he waited to report that there were any problems!! 30 minutes after the collision he was asked by someone in the control room if everything was OK and said "just having technical difficulties" !?!?! That was at 9:49pm... when officials tried to contact him at 12:30, he had already abandoned ship!!!
|look how close to the Island he was!!!|
The Captain has been questioned as to why he was even where he was... he was supposed to be about 4 miles further out to sea!! Black Box recordings have gathered that the Captain purposely changed course
