    Default Costa Concordia

    Costa Concordia cruise ship: Captain Francesco Schettino accused of sailing close to island of Giglio to salute fellow officer | Mail Online

    It is being said that the crew looked after themselvez first, took to the lifeboatz.
    Would you have helped others first or let self preservation take over.

    Me and my family first.

    I dont think anyone can answer that unless they have been in that position. Instinct has to kick in... whether that instinct is to help others or help ourselves who knows till it happens.

    Aren't they told to just get off and not hang around helping people?

    Correct. The best thing you can do usually in an emergency is to get moving.

    How would you prioritise who gets in the lifeboats first.

    You don't. Whoever is there first gets in first. If people at the front are held back it just all takes longer. Speed is of the essence.

    Heard the 'conversation' between the captain and the coast/harbour bloke(s) on 5live.

    They were telling him what to do as he obviously was not doing what he should've been doing.

    Mad stuff, with sad results it would seem.

    People who were there said some men were fighting to get in front of women and children to secure a place on the lifeboats... seems like the Captain was'nt the only coward.
