Costa staff did not know emergency tasks, says expert report


(ANSA) - Grosseto, September 12 - Several members of the
Costa Concordia crew were not sufficiently familiar with their
emergency duties on the night of the disaster that claimed 32
lives, an expert report said on Wednesday.
"Part of the crew with key responsibilities did not know
their duties in the case of an emergency," said an expert report
on the contents of the ship's black box commissioned by the
preliminary hearings judge for the case.
The report added that people without the appropriate
certification were put in charge of some lifeboats on the night
of the January 13 disaster.
It also said that "not all of the crew were able to
understand the instructions in the case of emergency in the
working language (Italian)".
The Concordia capsized after hitting a rock while sailing
close to the small Tuscan island of Giglio to 'salute' local
residents in one of Italy's worst maritime disasters since the
Second World War.
Captain Francesco Schettino is being investigated on
charges of manslaughter, abandoning ship, and failing to
communicate with maritime authorities in the crash.
The commander was dubbed 'captain coward' in the
international media after recordings of a conversation with
coast guards suggested he refused orders to return to the
semi-submerged Concordia after leaving before evacuation
operations had been completed.
