There’s probably not much more to say about this any more – the picture above is graphic enough. We know the broad answers:

  • It seems likely that the death toll will be a bit above 40 i.e. about 1% of those on board;
  • It seems most likely that it will turn out to have have been the fault of the captain, if (as expected) his navigation is found to be faulty. (That said, the difference between an uneventful cruise-past of Giglio harbour and the disaster that actually occurred may be as little as 10 or 20 feet in lateral distance.)
  • It also seems clear that the evacuation was confused, even chaotic; but it was successful.

We must wait for the results of the enquiry for the details.
