Crews Work to Upright Costa Concordia

Italy Crews in Italy race against the clock to remove the Costa Concordia cruise ship.

As you may remember the ship capsized in January 2012, killing 32 people. Today crews say they have one chance to get the ship upright and remove it.

"A ship is not designed to be on its side like that. So the weight, the sheer mass of the weight of the ship has molded her onto the reef and she has actually subsided about three meters around that reef since she first arrived here. And that sort of continued to happen every weather system, the waves and the buoyancy distribution... so the sooner we get her upright the better. She's got to come up now," said Engineer Nick Sloane.

More than 400 people will help remove the ship
