Rome, September 18 - Work began Wednesday on the
wrecked Costa Concordia to create safe conditions to search for
the bodies of two victims who have remained missing since the
mammoth cruise ship went down in one of Italy's largest maritime
disasters January 2012, killing 32.
The search for passenger Maria Grazia Tricarichi and crew
member Russel Rebello will begin at the earliest on Thursday.
Relatives of both victims arrived at the crash site at
Tuscany's Giglio Island on Tuesday.
The ship's carcass must also be winterized - in essence
stabilized - in order to withstand cold weather to be floated
and hauled away come the warm season next year, Italy's Civil
Protection Chief Franco Gabrielli said in the margins of a press
conference Wednesday.
A salvage crew from the Italian-US consortium
Micoperi-Titan succeeded in righting the ship and resting it on
an undersea platform in an unprecedented 19-hour operation
ending 4:00am Tuesday.
The righting of the liner now makes search for the missing
victims possible.
