than 4,200 passengers and crewwhen it slammed into a reef andcapsized Friday after the captainmade an unauthorized diversionfrom his programmed route andstrayed into the perilous waters.Capt. Francesco Schettino, whowas jailed after he left the shipbefore everyone was safely evacu-ated, was placed under house arrestTuesday, facing possible charges of manslaughter, causing a shipwreckand abandoning his ship.The ship’s operator, CrociereCosta SpA, has accused Schettinoof causing the wreck by making theunapproved detour, and the cap-tain has acknowledged carrying outwhat he called a “tourist naviga-tion” that brought the ship closerto Giglio. Costa has said such anavigational “fly by” was done lastAug. 9-10, after being approvedby the company and Giglio portauthorities.However, Lloyd’s ListIntelligence, a leading maritimepublication, said Wednesdayits tracking of the ship’s Augustroute showed it actually took theConcordia slightly closer to Gigliothan the course that caused Friday’sdisaster.New audio of Schettino’scommunications with the coastguard during the crisis emergedWednesday, with the captain claim-ing he ended up in a life raft after hetripped and fell into the water.“I did not abandon a ship with100 people on board, the ship sud-denly listed and we were throwninto the water,” Schettino said,according to a transcript publishedWednesday in the Corriere dellaSera paper.Initial audio of Schettino’sconversations made headlines onTuesday, showing an increasinglyexasperated coast guard officerordering Schettino back on boardto direct the evacuation, and thecaptain resisting, saying it was toodark and the ship was tipping.The officer’s order, “Get backon board, (expletive!)” has enteredthe Italian lexicon, becoming aTwitter hashtag and adorningT-shirts.Eleven people have been con-firmed dead so far, and 21 aremissing. Italian officials have onlyreleased 27 names so far, includ-ing two Americans, 12 Germans,six Italians, four French, and oneperson each from Hungary, Indiaand Peru.The missing include retireesJerry and Barbara Heil of WhiteBear Lake, Minn.Sarah Heil, their daughter, toldWBBM radio in Chicago that herparents had been looking forwardto the 16-day cruise after raisingfour kids and sending them all off to college.“They never had any money,”she said. “So when they retired,they went traveling. And this was tobe a big deal — a 16-day trip. Theywere really excited about it.”Schettino was questioned by a judge for three hours Tuesday, thenordered held under house arrestrather than jailed — a decision thatfederal prosecutors plan to chal-lenge.The judge, in her reasoningreleased Wednesday, said Schettinodidn’t represent a flight risk sincehe had stayed near the ship evenafter abandoning it, the ANSAnews agency reported.Schettino’s lawyer, BrunoLeporatti, told reporters housearrest made sense.“He never left the scene,” thelawyer said. “There has never beena danger of flight.”Leporatti added that Schettinowas upset by the accident, contraryto depictions in the Italian mediathat he did not appear to showregret.“He is a deeply shaken man, notonly for the loss of his ship, whichfor a captain is a grave thing, butabove all for what happened andthe loss of human life,” Leporattisaid.Criminal charges includingmanslaughter and abandoning shipare expected to be filed by pros-ecutors shortly. Schettino faces apossible 12 years in prison on theabandoning ship charge alone.
