Relatives cast flowers into sea near doomed Italian cruise ship

Divers resumed their search for survivors from the Italian cruise ship Saturday, a day after somber relatives tossed flowers into the sea near the wreck of the doomed vessel.
At least  11 people died and 21 remain missing since the ship ran aground last week, according to the Italian Crisis Unit.
Bouquets of red and yellow flowers swayed in the clear blue waters as the massive ship lay on its side nearby.
The underwater search for survivors resumed after divers suspended operations due to shifting of the cruise ship.

    Instead of casting flowers into the sea, these relatives need to be given this captain to cast into the sea.

    we have to make sure that someone hired in this type of job goes through exstensive training, in situations that are catastrophic i believe you can lead a horse to water but you cant make him drink.
