No one knows what happened. No notice of the captain and crew boats. The panic began to spread. The passenger screamed, and ran thither. A young woman – she was five months pregnant, crying in fear.
In the midst of chaos, from the loudspeakers sounded Costa Concordia Captain Francesco Schettino speak. He wanted to calm passengers. He said, there have been electrical damage. But the panic did not subside. They could not believe just because of power is broken, then the ship tilts. Moreover, the sea water began to inundate one side of the lower deck.
Can not wait to see the silent captain, the crew asked passengers wearing life jackets. There was a seven-time whistle sounded. That is, all the people aboard had to be docked into the lifeboats. All panic. The crew tried to save passengers as much as possible.
The Coast Guard contacted the closest any of the crew. The Costa Concordia needed help evacuate passengers. Some passengers panicked. Buoy to be a bone of contention. Evacuation more complicated. “I was convinced I would die. People trying to steal a life jacket to one another. We only get one life jacket for kids, “said Antonietta Sintolli, 65 years old.
The tragedy began. Who did not goto the lifeboats, and then plunged into the cold sea. Jumping into the sea is also done Nicole Servel. He jumped with life jackets mounted on the body, and survived. But, apparently he had to exchange lives. Servel survived thanks to the sacrifice of her husband, Francis Servel.

“I owe my life to my late husband,” Nicole said as quoted by Emirates 24 / 7. Servel family vacation should be fun. But all have to end up sad with the loss of Francis. Until now, rescue teams continued to search for the bodies of Francis.
Costa Concordia Evacuation
True to Haryono, a citizen of Indonesia, described the situation when the Costa Concordia hit a reef. At that time, True to the restaurant kitchen was in Milano. He worked as a fisherman. Passengers in the restaurant was very panicked. They screamed and yelled.
Firmly with the other crew tried hard to calm. Initially, they said the Costa Concordia probably shaking because of high winds. The crew did not know what happened. There was no official notification from the captain. They do not know the ship had been leaking, and water penetrates the lower deck.
Having heard the secret code on the loudspeakers, the new crews were understood. “There was a signal Tango-Tango-India-India. That is, there are sick people. Thirty minutes later, the emergency signal is turned on. We immediately herded passengers to the master station A and B, “True said in Rome, Italy, when contacted VIVAnews.
True to say, the crew has been trained, and know their respective duties when emergencies occur. Firm has nine years of sailing with the company Costa Cruises, Costa Concordia ship Costa Concordia operators. He knew exactly what he should do.

Most of the capacity of accommodating 150 people. In addition to lifeboats, there are still 69 rubber boats with a capacity of accommodating 35 people.
The crucial moment that the crew was busy saving the passengers. You see, rescue teams had arrived. Unfortunately, said Teguh, 70 percent of officials Costa Concordia actually fled to escape to the mainland. Including the Costa Concordia Captain Francesco Schettino.
Costa Concordia Party in the wheelhouse
Who would have thought, Costa Concordia helmsman when the tragedy was an Indonesian named Rush. True to tell, when the evacuation took place, Rush looked shocked and shaken. “He said to me, ‘That was me who to guard,’” said True.
Apparently, when Costa Concordia was a turn Rusli picket. Wheelhouse is located on the top floor of the ship Costa Concordia. But Rush is only acting as a regulator of the wheel, while the coordinates of the ship Costa Concordia, shall be governed entirely by the higher-ranking officials ships.
When receiving the command, Rush was feeling weird. Ship Costa Concordia should be turned so many degrees. However, she had received different instructions. Rusli remember exactly how many degrees the moment Costa Concordia was told. That he made in the police investigation.
Surprisingly, Rush said the wheelhouse was crowded. There was a farewell party of one official ship. Even more surprising, Ship Captain Francesco Schettino full alert should be in the wheelhouse, was not where he should have served.
“On television he (Schettino) remarked in the wheelhouse. That’s a big lie, “said True. He affirmed that he saw himself, the captain was having dinner and drinks at the restaurant with a woman.
Costa Concordia Captain disappeared
A passenger from the Netherlands, Monique Maurek, also said she saw Captain Ship Costa Concordia Schettino drinks at the bar. “This scandal. I saw the captain of the ship spent the night, before the ship hit a reef. He was drinking at the bar while embracing a beautiful woman, “he said.
Another witness, Phil Metcalf, said she saw the captain left the ship Costa Concordia in the early stages of evacuation. Schettino called the left passenger and his staff are working hard to save thousands of passengers who panicked.
“Because the captain left the ship Costa Concordia , there is no authority. Everyone is working hard to overcome the chaos. Very clearly, the crews with their own volition, to fill the void captain and tried to help rescue the passengers, “said Metcalf as published the Daily Mail.
Another passenger ship Costa Concordia, a member of the French military and police officers Gondelle Ophelie David Du Pays they also captain of the ship was caught in lifeboats, body and face covered with a blanket, before all the passengers were evacuated from a sinking ship Concordia.
As a result of acting that, Francesco Schettino now facing serious charges. He blamed the culprit it’s sinking of a luxury yacht. Schettino also allegedly ignored the thousands of passengers who fought to save themselves. Instead of helping the passengers, he actually found to have been first in the lifeboats with the officers of the ship Concordia.
Later, revealed Schettino was ordered back to the ship by the Coast Guard to assist in the evacuation process. But Schettino refused. He applied for a thousand reasons. It was revealed from the recorded conversation between Schettino with coast guard Gregorio De Falco. According to CNN, the tape would be strong evidence in court.
In the transcript, De Falco seemed angry with Schettino for leaving the ship and its passengers. At least 10 times De Falco ordered Schettino who were in lifeboats, to return to the ship.
“Back to the ship Costa Concordia ! It’s an order! You have ignored the ship. Now I was in charge. You’re on board! Clear? “Cried De Falco, the complete transcript excerpt that was published the New York Post. He then ordered a U-turn sekocinya Schettino, and climbed back into the Concordia.
De Falco also asked Schettino record number of passengers survived. “Back to the ship v, and tell me how many people are still there, and what they need. Tell whether there are children and women, or people who need help, “said De Falco.
Schettino felt unmoved and did not obey his orders, De Falco increasingly irate. “Look Schettino, you’re probably safe. But you will get even bigger problem! Back to the ship, “cried De Falco again.
Schettino and provide answers to spin. He reasoned condition of the ship Costa Concordia was tilted, and too dark to provide assistance. “Did you know there dark, and we could not see anything?” Said the captain.
“What do you mean? There was dark and you want to go home? Now back to the ship Costa Concordia and go up the stairs, then tell what can be done, how much, and what they need. Now! “Replied De Falco growled.
The BBC reported, the operator Costa Concordia, Costa Crociere, said Schettino bring the ship Costa Concordia too close to the mainland. As a result of his mistake, the ship Costa Concordia hit a reef. Concordia torn hull. Water got into the boat.
The company Costa Crociere is also the captain with a harsh reprimand. “The captain had made a mistake assessment, a serious consequence. The route taken by the ship Costa Concordia too close to the beach. Besides its decision in a state of emergency also was not with Costa Crociere procedures that meet international standards, “the company said in a statement.
