Costa Concordia captain in court for pre-trial hearing today, CNN’s Bed Wedeman reports

When the Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia, capsized off the Tucson coast in January, 32 people were killed. The captain of the ship has since been charged with manslaughter and abandoning ship. He is in court today for a pretrial hearing. Survivors of the disaster are also present. CNN’s Bed Wedeman has the details live from Rome.

Experts are expected to reveal data from the black box in court today. “This will provide hard data on exactly what happened on the night of January 11th, 2012,” Wedeman says, “when this cruise ship, which is the size of three football fields, carrying more than 4,000 crew members and passengers, hit a rock just off the Italian coast.”
