Gabriel Grube – Costa Concordia Sinking, Carnival’s Costa Concordia – January 13, 2012, Time of Death 9:45-4:00.
Gabriel Grube, 52, from Oberasbach in Bavaria, Germany 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.
Grube was last seen by a friend, trying to get three people who were wheelchair-bound to get into the lifeboats. Suddenly the ship listed and Grube was tossed to the other side of the ship, never to be seen alive again.
The captain of Concordia 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.
