A British couple celebrating their anniversary onboard the Costa Concordia on January 13, 2012 say they will launch a lawsuit against the owners. John and Mandy Rodford want the company to “suffer” like they say that they’ve suffered.
The two were rescued from the cruise ship that night, taken off by lifeboat, Mandy Rodford told a court in Grosseto, Italy Monday, but not before they were traumatized by the events that unfolded around them.
She said the owners of the ship, the British-American owned Costa Crociere (trading as Costa Cruises) should pay for their trauma. “Costa Crociere has to suffer as we have suffered and continue to suffer,” she said. “We nearly lost our lives.”
