Minnesota couple on board capsized cruise ship identified
The only U.S. casualties of the Costa Concordia ship wreck that killed 32 of the 4,200 passengers and crew members after it hit rocks along the Tuscan coast have been identified as a White Bear Lake couple.
The elderly couple were presumed dead weeks after the ship capsized, and friends and family held a memorial service in February. It has not been revealed when the family will receive its loved ones’ remains.
Three other people were also identified last week, a German couple and an Italian crew member. Two people are still missing, an Indian crew man and an Italian woman, and are presumed dead.
