Ship survivor disgusted by captain: 'he just up and left'

Two American survivors of the cruise ship Concordia expressed disgust at the recorded comments of the ship's captain, who stands accused of abandoning ship with people passengers onboard. "With people dying, people panicking... he just up and left the ship," said Joan Fleser on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront. Fleser says children were "being squashed" in the rush to escape the capsized ship.
