In 2012, the cruise ship Costa Concordia struck an uncharted reef adjacent to the small Island of Giglio, off of the coast of Tuscany, Italy. However, this wasn’t the first time the ship had sailed dangerously close to the tiny Island.
According to satellite tracking information given to the BBC the Costa Concordia sailed closer to the Island the prior August than it did on the day of the disaster.
