Costa Concordia salvage begins: Will ship stay in one piece during righting?

Delayed by three hours because of strong thunderstorms, the unprecedented operation of salvaging the massive Costa Concordia cruise liner began Monday morning off the coast of Italy, near the island of (J IH L - L EE - OH )Giglio. The giant vessel ran aground and tipped over in January 2012, killing 32 of the 4,200 people on board. Righting the ship could take up to two days, but engineer Sergio Girotto said he&;s an optimist, expecting the operation to take about 12 hours. At midday, the ship had been raised 3 degrees, or a few meters that is (6 to 10 feet), Girotto said.
