Death toll now at 8 in Italy port crash; 1 missingMay 10, 2013 @ 1:46 pm
ROME (AP) - The Italian coast guard says divers have found the body of another victim of a cargo ship crash into Genoa's dock, raising the death toll to eight.
Coast guard Cmdr. Filippo Marini said the body of a coastguardsman was found in the waters off the port on Friday night. The Italian cargo vessel Jolly Nero's crash into the dock toppled the harbor control tower into the water. Another guardsman, who also was on duty in the tower, is missing, and the search continues for him.
Genoa Prosecutor Michele di Lecce says investigators are looking into the possible malfunction of a motor, but stressed the investigation is in its early stages.
The crash occurred Tuesday night in good weather.
