South African Nick Sloan (C) , senior salvage master of Titan-Micoperi, speaks to journalists following the successful rotation of the wreck of Italy's Costa Concordia cruise ship on September 17, 2013 near the harbour of Giglio Porto. Salvage operators in Italy lifted the Costa Concordia cruise ship upright from its watery grave off the island of Giglio in the biggest ever project of its kind. The ship's horn sounded for the first time since the January 13, 2012 tragedy, its sound mixing with applause and cheers in the port in a dramatic climax to the massive salvage operation. Local residents and survivors spoke of an eerie feeling as the ship rose, saying the sight reminded them of the tragedy that claimed 32 lives.
