The ongoing saga of Captain Francesco Schettino continues making even murkier exactly what happened on the cruise ship. Everyone, including the good captain, agrees the ship hit reefs near an island and this led to the ship listing to starboard, or whatever. Police arrested the gallant captain who, by accident, fell into a lifeboat. New information indicates that after Schettino banged into the rocks, he actually did some remarkable navigating to ensure the boat came close to the shore.
Cruise line executives insist our brave captain never told them the real story as to what happened nor did he inform coastal authorities that his ship had capsized. I assume the accidental plunge into a lifeboat may have impaired his grasp as to what was going on. The major question remaining about this story is who will play Captain Schettino in the film?
