A few of the dramatic images from the final moments of the Costa Concordia have been released, showing the ocean liner leaning on its side and with lifeboats scattered throughout the black water.

Pictures of the ship have been floating around the news and internet ever since the ship hit the rocks off the island of Giglio, which show the semi-submerged ship and its surrounding area.

I cannot think of any other naval or air tragedy in which the responsible party was treated with such violence… This is a manhunt, people are looking for a scapegoat, a monster. It’s shameful.”

There are still 16 people missing and 16 have already been confirmed dead. Oil will be pumped out of the vessel this weekend, which is projected to take at least four weeks to complete.
