GIGLIO, ITALY - Engineers have declared the crippled Costa Concordia cruise ship completely upright after a 19-hour operation to pull it from its side where it capsized last year off Tuscany.
Shortly after 4 a.m. Tuesday, a foghorn rang out on Giglio Island and the head of Italy's Civil Protection agency, Franco Gabrielli, announced that the ship had reached vertical and that the operation to rotate it was complete.
Applause rang out among firefighters in the tent where Gabrielli and other project engineers made the announcement.
Officials said there was no apparent pollution in the waters around the ship as a result of the operation.
