Like a scene out of the Titanic, dinner was just being served in the dinning room of the Costa Concordia, when things went completely wrong.  The magic show in the main theater also was disturbed when the ship started to sink.  The ship that was set sail to the coast of Italy made a wrong turn, and passengers jumped into the cold Mediterranean Sea!

“We were crawling up a hallway, in the dark, with only the light from the life vest strobe flashing,” her mother, Georgia Ananias, 61 said. “We could hear plates and dishes crashing, people slamming against walls.”

According to Yahoo, the ship was on its way to Italy when it made a wrong turn and actually crashed into a coral reef. With a 160-foot gash in the side of the boat, it wasn’t too certain what to expect when it came to finding the passengers. And a ton of questions were raised about the captain of the ship. Some are saying he did it on purpose. All I know, is that it turned out better than expected because a majority of the people were saved!

Surviving passengers huddled under woolen or aluminum blankets in a middle school on the Italian mainland of Porto Santo Stefano, where passengers were ferried early Saturday from Giglio. Some wore their life preservers, their shoeless feet were covered with aluminum foil.
