Ship keels over off Tuscany coast

With 4200 souls on board, the cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground off the coast of Italy yesterday. Officials are reporting 3 lives lost, however, the number of missing and injured are unknown as this time. A 160 foot gash in the side of the ship sent water gushing through the hull, forcing evacuation.
