Italian authorities are considering when to call off the search for survivors aboard the wreck of the cruise liner Costa Concordia, the coast guard said Thursday, as rescuers used explosives to blow new holes in the ship in search of victims.
Authorities are considering when to change the operation from rescue to recovery, coast guard spokesman Cosimo Nicastro said Thursday.
At least 11 people are known to have died in the disaster, and 21 are still missing, according to the Italian Crisis Unit.
Coast guard records published Thursday by an Italian newspaper pile further pressure on the captain of the Concordia and his officers, suggesting that the authorities first became aware of the crash from a friend of the mother of a passenger about 15 minutes after the ship hit rocks.
The coast guard identified the ship in trouble and contacted it, asking if there were problems on board, at 10:14 p.m. - more than half an hour after the 9:41 p.m. collision - according to a coast guard log published in the newspaper La Repubblica.

I find it endlessly amusing that you just butchered the language yourself whilst buying into the same stereotypes that you are chiding this troll on.
Make no mistake that is a fake s kel, I know, but "maybe you should go back to school learn to speak proper, and than go get some etiquet classes and learn how to dress maybe your pants are not saging enough,"...really?
As sad as it is, it's been almost a week, they should begin recovery operations soon.
Not s kel.
