Costa Concordia parbuckling likely to begin on Monday

The wrecked Costa Concordia cruise ship could be upright again next week, nearly two years after the liner capsized and killed at least 30 people off the Italian coast.

The 114,000-ton ship, which has lain partly submerged in shallow waters off the Tuscan island of Giglio since the accident in January 2012, will be rolled off the seabed and onto underwater platforms — called “parbuckling.”

Workers will look for the bodies of two people, an Italian and an Indian unaccounted for since the disaster.
