On January 13, Costa Concordia, a cruise ship, was sailing very close to the western coast of Italy and hit some rocks. The rocks made a big hole in the ship, and the ship started leaning towards one side, eventually capsizing. There were over 4,000 people on board and they had to evacuate the ship. A few people died and some are still missing. The ship’s captain is being blamed for sailing the ship too close to the coast. One of the worst passenger ship accidents was in 1912 when the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg.
