    Luxury cruise ship aground off Italy; 3 dead - CBS News


    No evacuation drills, no one knew where to go and the lifeboats were useless. Horrible accident. Its a wonder more didn't die.

    A good dose of saltwater was probably a help to get rid of the bacteria growing in that useless piece of shit.

    It hit the bottom, hence, it sunk. He didn't say submerged.

    SINK: to displace part of the volume of a supporting substance or object and become totally or partially submerged or enveloped; fall or descend into or below the surface or to the bottom.

    Have a hard time feeling sorry for any of them. They shopped around and found the cruise with the least expense. They didn't care about how much money was spent training the crew, or physical upkeep of the ship itself, nor did they care about if the crew was paid enough to actually care about the passengers. Capitalism at it's finest. The life boats didn't work - lack of regulation. No evac drills - lack of regulation. They got exactly what they paid for. The only thing that would make this story funnier is if the cruise line couldn't be sued, like the pharmasuetical companies.
