Early on today you may have heard about the Costa Concordia accident, which saw a modern cruise ship hit ground and over 4000 people needing a quick evacuation.
Our earlier article highlighted some of the facts but didn’t visualize the scope of the Costa Concordia accident, although we now have some amazing video footage for you that can be seen below this article.
The scene is unbelievable, reminds some people of Titanic, and at first we thought the cruise ship had only slightly tilted, but as you can see from the videos, it’s a a lot worse. You can see that the Costa Concordia is now almost completely on its side, and one can only think how the passengers that were on this ship must feel looking at the footage.
Let us know your thoughts on the footage below, and we’ll update you as more information is provided. Have all the cruise ships you’ve been on sailed free of problems? The videos below include pictures and footage from people in the area, and also news media, which really gives you some insight into the scale of this situation.
UPDATE: We’ve added some more videos, one from a helicopter during the night, and also others shot by amateurs with phone cameras.
