ROME (AP) – Italian authorities say divers searching the capsized Costa Concordia cruise ship have spotted four more bodies in a submerged section of a passenger deck.

The national civil protection agency, which is monitoring the operation, said the bodies were sighted Wednesday afternoon, a few hours after four other bodies were found.

Because of worsening weather, only three of the bodies were immediately recovered, that of a woman, a man and a child.

The Concordia struck a reef near the Tuscan island of Giglio on Jan. 13 and capsized.

The number of dead and those missing and presumed dead stands at 32.
