SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – A Fort Gratiot couple is happy to be back in Michigan after spending the weekend on the Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia, that ran aground near Italy’s Tuscan coast.
CBS News reports rescue operations continue Tuesday, with six passengers confirmed dead and 29 still missing. The captain has been arrested and is reportedly under investigation for manslaughter and abandoning ship.
Speaking live on WWJ Tuesday morning, Steve Ledtke said he and his wife were having dinner on the ship Friday night when all of a sudden “we could hear and feel a thud” and then heard glasses breaking. He says shortly after there was “a dramatic tilt” of the ship.
