Luckily, the cruise ship above had just left port when it ran aground and capsized with 4,234 people aboard. As it is, there are still 69 people missing after a Costa Concordia cruise began a 7 day Mediterranean cruise from Italy.

If this ship had been further out to sea there would be lots more people missing and dead. There are reports that the ship leaned so much, that the lifeboats on one side of the ship were completely useless.
