“I didn’t even have a life jacket because I had given it to one of the passengers. I was trying to get people to get into the boats in an orderly fashion. Suddenly, since the ship was at a 60-70° angle, I tripped and I ended up in one of the boats. That’s how I found myself in the lifeboat.” –Francesco Schettino, captain of the Costa Concordia cruise liner, which struck rocks off the coast of Tuscany last week.
