They have finally managed to get divers into the boat despite adverse weather conditions, and have searched some of the common areas. 28 are confirmed dead, 276 missing. They were still looking as I wrote this, but it’s looking very bad. The vice principal of the school that was having the field trip, who was rescued, appears to have killed himself.
There is a Costa Concordia feel to the whole thing. There were a bunch of safety violations (Cars improperly secured causing instability, them never having done evacuation drills so the crew didn’t know what to do. Going against protocol to order passengers to shelter in place instead of move to the upper decks). It’s looking like those who obeyed the crew are the ones who died. They have arrested the captain.
I honestly can’t blame people for their fury and frustration. It is a terrible thing to happen, and it so clearly didn’t have to.
That awkward moment when you start watching a terrible Law & Order episode because of its crazy bullshit about goths, and then you realize it’s actually crazy bullshit about “real” vampires and one of the characters is almost definitely based on someone you used to know.
Trust me it’s significantly weirder when it’s the Criminal Minds loosely inspired by the murder of my ex.
