Rescuers have found three more bodies onboard the stricken Costa Concordia, bringing the death toll to six, while 15 more people remain missing. Earlier, a helicopter airlifted a survivor from the capsized hulk of the ship.
The Italian Coastguard says the divers involved in the rescue operation have discovered the bodies of two elderly people in the submerged restaurant of the luxury cruise ship.
An Italian crew member was rescued more than 36 hours after the accident. He has a serious leg injury. During the night rescuers discovered a South Korean honeymoon couple who had been trapped inside the ship for more than 24 hours.
