Costa Concordia captain blames crew for deadly wreck

The captain of the ship that slammed into the rocks off Italy's coast nearly a year ago killing 32 people told a judge that the wreck was the fault of his crew.

"I asked the helmsman to turn the ship left, and he made the error and did not, an instead turned hard to the right," Captain Francescoi Schettino said.
