Can you believe the Costa Concordia capsized off the coast of Italy over two years ago? And it’s still sitting there!
Today, the largest maritime salvage operation in history started. It’ll probably take them a week to get the ship back to the mainland, which seems like no time at all when you consider how long it’s been there.
It was January 2012 when the cruise ship hit the reef off the Italian island of Giglio and capsized, killing 32 people.
It was April 2013 when platforms were built to support the ship. Then in September of that year, cables were added to pull the ship upright.
Since September, more caissons have been added, water has been pumped out, and the ship has been re-floated so that it can be towed to shore.
That brings us today, and you can watch the operation live!
This is must see TV people!
