DIVERS have found the body of a woman while searching the wrecked Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia, the 17th victim to be found.
The woman was a crew member, indicated by the uniform she was wearing, the BBC reported. Further details had yet to be released.
As the body was found, a handful of rescued passengers filed a lawsuit against the Italian cruise line, Carnival Corporation.
The complaint was filed in Miami, naming four American and two Italian plaintiffs who, it said, were ''in terror of catastrophic injury, death, drowning, having been placed in a situation where common sense said the vessel was sinking but the orders from the crew were to return to their cabins''.
