Tilt - The Costa Concordia Drama
Schräglage - Das Drama um die Costa Concordia
One of the largest, most luxurious and most expensive cruise ships in the world approaches the Tuscan island of Giglio much too fast and much too close. She hits a rock, lists and runs aground. The crew launches the rescue operation too slowly.
These are the facts of the disastrous so-called "bow" of the "Costa Concordia" commanded by Francesco Schettino.
More than 3,000 passengers are panicking, more than 1,000 crew members aren't sure what to do - at the end of the tragedy are 34 dead and the risk of massive pollution.
Was it recklessness or madness to go so close to the island? Was it irresponsibility or conscientious calmness to take to the boats so late?
Ulla Haider chronicles the course of a preventable disaster that shocked the world on 13 January 2012 and is reminiscent of what probably was the most terrible maritime disaster, the sinking of the "Titanic," almost exactly 100 years earlier.
