Divers find body in Costa Concordia wreck


Divers searching the wreck of the Costa Concordia have found what is thought to be the body of an Indian waiter who had been working onboard.

The family of 33-year-old Mumbai native Russel Rebello have told how he stayed on the doomed cruise ship to help evacuate others.

An Italian passenger, Maria Grazia Trecarichi, is the only other person missing.

The ship’s captain, Francesco Schettino, is on trial over last year’s disaster off Italy’s coast which killed 32 people in total. He is accused of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship.
