    Most of those aboard the Costa Concordia made it out on the ship's lifeboats, and were ferried to safety.

    The luxury cruise liner ran aground off Italy's Tuscany coast late on Friday. At least three people were killed in the accident that affected some 4,000 people who were on board.

    Many passengers who could not access the lifeboats plunged off the side of the ship and swam to safety, but some people are still unaccounted for.

    Rescue operations are continuing, as searchers check to see if anyone else remains on the overturned vessel.
