Diver dies in Costa Concordia salvage

ADVERTISEMENT

 

A Spanish diver died on Feb. 1 during work to salvage the cruise ship M/V Costa Concordia off the Italian island of Giglio, according to a story by Reuters News Service.


 

The diver worked for the Spanish company UCS (Underwater Contractors Spain) and was involved in an underwater operation when the incident occurred, an official at Titan Micoperi told Reuters.


 

The Costa Concordia hit rocks two years ago and partially sank, killing 32 people. It was righted in September but remains in place. Divers are attaching 30 massive air tanks to the liner so that it can be lifted off the seabed in June and towed away to be dismantled.
