We begin here with the images from that deadly nightmare The passengers saying it was just like something out of Titanic .after this cruise ship ran aground near the coast of Tuscany. 4000 passengers on board more than a hundred Americans were on board the Costa Concordia as it tipped over a 160 foot gash torn deep into its hull, the crippled ship laying almost flat on its side leaving desperate passengers to fight to swim to safety as it tipped over and tonight we have heard that the ships's captain has now been detained. He is now in jail. He faces serious charges , manslaughter and abandoning ship before the passengers were off themselves. Tonight the latest toll. At least 3 people known dead, some 40 other still unaccounted for. Good Evening David. We are standing in the port where many of those lucky survivors came after their harrowing ordeal. And tonight a miraculous find,more than 40 hours after the cruise ship ran aground firefighters have found a man and a woman alive. They are communicating with with them but they are not out yet More than 40 passengers are still unaccounted forl The underwater search for survivors continues in the morning As for those 126 American vacationers on board,none of them were injured It was a frantic rescue operation, authorities having to crawl through the the listing ship and divers searching underwater sections for anyone left inside. You can clearly see what they were up against For passengers it was a race against time to escape a scene now described as utter chaos. Everybody was just screaming out .All the passengers running up and down Some vacationers panicked when the ship began to tilt scrambling to get to safety by jumping Several died trying to escape but others made it to shore. Passengers who stayed onthe ship were ordered to put on lifejackets and get into liferafts (lifeboats) echoeing stories from the Titanic. many passengers were having dinner when the ship suddenly lurched. They were initially told everything was ok They said we should stay calm,It's just an electrical problem or some blackout thing over 3 fooballfields long The ship had actually run aground and was taking on water fast. Passengers complained the crew failed them. The Costa Concordia is owned by the company that runs Carnival Cruise Lines. It has been in service since 2006 and an.d does this trip every week of the year The Costa Cruise has a long record of accidents on its ships. W ell tonight ABC news has learned that the captain of the ship is being detained in a jail facing possible charges of manslaughter as well as abandoning ship We are expecting more arrests to be made in this unfolding nightmare David We know it is customary for the passengers on these cruise ship to be drilled with safety procedures Do we know if that took place on that particular ship''''??????????? Exactly David they were supposed to have those emergency drills But they just didn't happen and that's why a lot of passengers were complaining to us tonight saying they weren't given clear instructions on how to evacuate They simply didn't know what to do A lot of questions about that in the days and weeks to come And as you heard Lama report there ,many of the frightened passengers barely making it out. calling inthe dark, grasping for their lifevests .trying to get to safety as the broken ship tipped over and of course so many of them swimming to the shore on their own and so tonight here their harrowing tale in their own words
