In this silent video, Courtesy of the Italian Carabinieri (police), we get a glimpse of the inside of the sunken Costa Concordia which has been lying off the coast of Giglio, Italy since early January 2012.   The ship is scheduled to be towed to Genoa later this month for dismantling and recycling.

Police divers explored the wreck of the £500 million luxury liner and filmed evidence of debris and dilapidation from the ship's two-and-a-half-years spent under water.  Some of the furnishings appear to be well-preserved as if frozen in time.   After watching this video, also watch the second video captured just moments before the fateful incident.
