There is always something terribly sad about a shipwreck, especially when lives are lost and people are still missing.
This video–of the final dive on the Costa Concordia before the search for remaining bodies was called off–is a testament to the haunting nature of doomed ships.
It was uploaded yesterday, with this description:
The search for the remaining 15 passengers still missing from the stricken Costa Concordia cruise ship has been called off. Italian officials say the effort was too dangerous for rescue workers. The search had already
been suspended several times due to poor weather and choppy water. 17 bodies have been recovered from the Concordia since it ran aground off the island of Giglio earlier this month.
This is a tragedy that will stay with us for a long time.
