Bowling Green woman tells of chaotic scenes aboard capsizing ship in Italy
By Joe Corcoran
Bowling Green, KY – It's perhaps a crowning irony that in this centennial year of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, another passenger liner wreck has made headlines. One week ago, the cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground on a reef off the west coast of Italy. At least eleven people have lost their life, sixty-four were injured, and so far, twenty-one are still missing. One of the surviving passengers is 28-year-old Lauren Moore of Bowling Green. She was on vacation with four friends, all of whom escaped injury, when the accident happened. Moore recently sat down with Kentucky Public Radio's Joe Corcoran to talk about the experience and its lingering effects.
