Costa Concordia to be raised in Sept

The Costa Concordia cruise ship will be raised up next month near the Italian island where it still lies keeled over more than a year on from the deadly disaster, the salvage co-ordinator said on Friday. The giant liner crashed into the picturesque Tuscan island of Giglio on the night of 13 January last year with 4 229 people from 70 countries on board in a disaster that claimed 32 lives. “If things go as we are expecting. I think September will be the month of the rotation,” prefect Franco Gabrielli told Italian news channel SkyTG24, declining to give a precise date.
