A Coastguard boat approaches the stricken cruise liner Costa Concordia on January 17, 2012. Damning character reports piled against the captain of the luxury liner which sank off the coast of Italy, who is accused by Italian prosecutors of multiple manslaughter and abandoning ship. Captain Francesco Schettino, 52, has been described as a reckless show-off who refused to accept advice and operated the ship as if it was a speed boat.(credit: FILIPPO MONTEFORTE/AFP/Getty Images)
