There’s an Italian scuba diver from the island of Giglio, where the partially submerged Costa Concordia lies, who is praying the cruise liner will sink. Why? Because Aldo Baffigi believes if it sinks it will attract scuba divers from the world over.
“Every night I light a candle and say a prayer for it to sink,” Baffigi, from Giglio, says of the ship on which 32 people died. “It would be the most popular shipwreck in the world. We wouldn’t know what to do with all the divers. It would be like manna from heaven.”
