Shipwrecked Concordia Completes Last Voyage

Sunday, 27 Jul 2014 07:55 AM

GENOA, Italy — The shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner has completed its final journey.

Pulled by tugboats and nudged by brisk winds, the wreck was eased Sunday into Genoa's port — where it will be scrapped.

The luxury liner struck a reef when its captain sailed too close to Giglio Island off Tuscany's coast Jan. 13, 2012, and capsized, killing 32 people.

A spectacular operation set the wreck upright in September 2013. On Wednesday, tugboats began the five-day journey to Genoa, headquarters of ship owner Costa Crociere Spa.

The wreck will be searched in hopes of finding the remains of an Indian waiter, the only body never found.

Ship captain Francesco Schettino is being tried for alleged manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning the boat with many passengers and crew still aboard.
