META DI SORRENTO (Dagbladet): The cruise ship «Costa Concordia» has capsized.

Now, it is sinking.

As the drama unfolds on the news, the world is watching.

The transcript of the radio communication that takes place between captain Francesco Schettino and Gregori de Falco of the Livorno coast guard on that fatal night in January of 2012, spreads around the globe. De Falco is instantly labeled a hero. Schettino, from that point on, is known as «Captain Coward»:

Francesco Schettino: «Right now, the boat is capsized.»

De Falco: «I understand that. But listen. There are people coming down the ladder of the prow. Go up that ladder, get back on that ship and tell me how many people are still on board. Is that clear? Tell me if there are children, women and what kind of help they need. And tell me the exact number in each of these categories. Is that clear?
