Time of Cruise Ship DeathErika Fani Soria Molina

Erika Fani Soria Molina, 25, from Peru worked as a crew member waitress and died aboard Carnival Corp’s, Costa Cruises’ Costa Concordia when the cruise ship grounded off the coast of Giglio, Italy on Friday the 13, January 13, 2012.

Her body was found by divers on the sixth deck of the vessel wearing the ship’s uniform but no life jacket. An early false report said she was seen jumping into a lifeboat. She had passed her lifejacket to an elderly passenger, helping many passengers into lifeboats. It was her third cruise aboard Concordia.

The captain of Concordia (Francesco Schettino) took the cruise ship too close to shore, it grounded on a reef, ripping a massive hole in the hull of the ship, leaving a huge rock embedded in the hull. Lower compartments began to flood, causing the ship to list severely.
