No Russians Perished in Costa Concordia Crash

All 108 Russians travelling on board the Costa Concordia liner were established communication, three Russian crew members were injured.

      Spokesperson of the Russian Tourism Industry Union, Irina Tyurina said they were able to connect all seven Russian travel operators that sell trips of the liner. With their help the information about passengers was collected very fast, so the searchings were of success.

      As the evacuated tourists were taken to hotels, it turned out that most of them had lost their passports, as cruise rules assign foreign IDs to be kept in the receptionist’s safe on the ship.

      Italian Costa Concordia liner carrying more than 4,200 passengers on board hit a reef and ran aground off the coast of Isola del Giglio island. At least five people were killed and 40 were injured. Most of them sustained broken limbs, bruises and hypotermia; at least two people are said to be in a serious condition. At the moment 70 people went missing.

      The authorities have arrested the ship’s captain, Francesco Schettino, on charges of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship while passengers were still onboard.
