A large 21st century Italian cruise ship carrying more than 4,000 people sunk like a Titanic off the west coast. Its holiday tuned nightmare for the people involved. Poor Italians. 6 people were killed in the incident.

The passengers and workers of the cruise named Costa Concordia, were evacuated before taken to an island named Gigolo(?) off the Tuscan coast.

Italian news agency said that at least six people were killed and a number injured, but that the cause of the deaths was not immediately known. The Italian coastguard said the ship had taken on water and was listing about 20 degrees but that there was no danger of it sinking. The cruise ship company said the cause of the incident was being investigated.
