Remains of Concordia victim found, perhaps waiter
ROME (AP) - October 8, 2013 (WPVI) -- Divers searching the submerged wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship have found the remains of one of the two people still missing from the 2012 disaster.
The Italian commissioner in charge of the Concordia cleanup said the remains are believed to be those of Russel Rebello, an Indian waiter. They were found Tuesday on the third deck.
Thirty-two people died when the Concordia slammed into a reef off the Tuscan island of Giglio and capsized on Jan. 13, 2012. The bodies of Rebello and an Italian woman, Maria Grazia Trecarichi, were not recovered.
Divers have been able to access areas of the ship that were previously off-limits following the massive operation to right it last month. Officials have said the priority was to locate the remaining two bodies.
