Almost everyone has heard of the Titanic, the British passenger liner which sank in the Atlantic ocean after hitting an iceberg enroute from England to New York. But, have you heard of the Costa Concordia? This Italian cruise ship suffered a similar fate far more recently.

On January 13th, 2012, the Costa Concordia capsized and sank after sailing too close to the shore and hitting an underwater rock obstruction off the Isola del Giglio in Tuscany. 32 people died lost their lives in the incident. There were approximately 4,252 people on board.

The ship had been sailing across the Mediterranean Sea, starting at the Civitavecchia in Lazio, Italy when it deviated from the course. It’s one of the largest ships to ever be abandoned and it sparked massive international media coverage.

In July of 2014, the ship was refloated using large metal tanks attached to the sides of the ship and was towed back to its home port in Genoa. The ship is scheduled to be dismantled for materials and recycled but before it is, this is what it looks like now.
