An Italy ship went aground at the Italian coast, putting life of various passengers on risk. There were 4,234 passengers on board out of which 70 are un-trapped and bodies of 3 are recovered so far.

The ship Costa Concordian went aground at the Island of Giglio near the cost of Tuscany later on the Friday. Passengers said that they were not properly trained about the evacuation plan, and even mock drill was scheduled for Saturday. Not even this but when the trouble arrived, there was delay in lowering of the life boats.

The names of the missing are been searched and matched. Helicopters as well as the private ships are used for rescuing the passengers and also for searching the missing ones.

Many said that this incidence was just like Titanic.
