Crew member reassured coastguard there was no emergency
Another audio tape has been released in Italy revealing how a crew member of the Costa Concordia cruise ship reassured coast guards there was no emergency, 30 minutes or so after it hit rocks.
A coast guard asked the crewman if everything was all right and the crewman repeatedly said it was a blackout.
The search of the stricken ship resumed on Thursday, but with little hope of finding any survivors.
Matthew Price reports.
