On 13 January 2012, at 21:45 local time (UTC+1), Costa Concordia hit a rock off Isola del Giglio. A 50-metre (164 ft) long gash was made in the hull, along 3 compartments of the engine room (deck 0); power to the engines and ship services was cut off. Taking on water, the vessel started to list to port. Without power, the ship drifted astern but was now listing heavily to starboard. The ship, pushed by winds laterally, drifted back and grounded near shore, then partly capsized onto her starboard side, in an unsteady position on a rocky underwater ledge. Almost half of the ship remained above water, but it was in danger of sinking completely into a trough 70 metres (230 ft) deep.

Interestingly, in the Bing Map view, there is a cruise ship heading straight for the rock...

Google Earth historical imagery dates the view in thumbnail at 2012.03.12. 2013.08.02 imagery shows it still on its side, but with the counterweights used to right the ship attached. 2013.09.13 imagery shows the ship upright.
