25 passengers and four crew members are still missing as rescue efforts continue to on the toppled luxury cruise liner that capsized Friday night off the Italian coast.
The total number of passenger and crew member injuries are reported to be near 60. An Italian cabin steward suffered a broken leg and wasn’t rescued until 36 hours after the crash. The injuries crew members suffered have not been released.
The crash occurred after the captain maneuvered the ship too close to shore and hit the rocky ocean floor. He is currently on house arrest and faces charges of manslaughter, causing a ship wreck, and leaving the vessel before all people were evacuated.
Rescuers found five more bodies today, all believed to be passengers. Their identities have not yet been identified.
An employee of a Florida elementary school is speaking with the Florida school board about an incident in which he was kicked in the groin by a student. The man claims that the school’s prinicpal is at fault because she allowed the young student to bully classmates and staff.
The incident occurred last October, when the man was overseeing after-school detention. A young girl kicked the man in the groin, and he was severely injured. The man has claimed that, following the incident, the school’s prinicipal did not call authorities.
The superintendent of the district sent a letter of reprimand to the principal for not reporting the incident to authorities. However, the man believes that the principal should also be fired for acting negligently and allowing the incident to occur and is calling on the school board to enact a punishment on the principal.
