Video of Sinking Cruise Ship

Below are several amazing videos of the cruise ship Costa Concordia, which struck some rocks on Friday, January 13, and started to sink off the coast of Tuscan. As of Sunday, January 15, there were five confirmed deaths and 19 passengers and crew still missing. There were more than 4,200 people on board the ship, which is bigger than the Titanic which sank in 1912 and inspired numerous books and movies due to the high death toll. The accident happened near the island of Giglio, Italy, when the boat apparently struck a reef, tearing huge gashes into the bottom of the ship which allowed ocean water to rush in and the ship to begin listing. Early reports were that the crew initially downplayed the disaster and the captain abandoned ship. The captain has since been arrested.

For perspective on how majestic this ship was, we have included a video of the ship before the accident. The videos after that show the ship sinking.
