Human remains found on Italy cruise ship wreck: Official
ROME (AFP, AP) - Italian rescuers have found human remains on the wreck of Italy's Costa Concordia, which are believed to belong to one of two victims who are still missing, the civil protection agency said on Tuesday.
The "remains of a human body, which could be one of the two missing, an Indian waiter" were found on the third bridge of the cruiseliner which crashed off the tiny island of Giglio in January 2012, said agency spokeswoman Francesca Maffini.
The latest finds raises the death toll to 250.
Coast Guard Commander Filippo Marini said 18 bodies were recovered on Tuesday from within the ship’s hold, while one was spotted by a helicopter floating near the wreck.
