Costa Concordia passenger sues over miscarriage


Another Costa Concordia passenger has come forward and filed a lawsuit against Costa Crociere.

A 30-year-old Italian woman identified only as Cristina M. claims she was four months pregnant when she went on the doomed Costa Concordia cruise, the Herald Sun reports.

Though she managed to get off the sinking ship, she was admitted to a hospital last week and suffered a miscarriage. She is now suing the company for one million Euros in damages.

The Herald Sun reports that her doctors claim the “intense psychological stress suffered both during the night-time evacuation and when her lifeboat smashed up against rocks as it headed for the nearby shore” is to blame.

  1. Despite the fact that I’m staunchly pro life, miscarriages are extremely common and happen for a lot of reasons. While I have no doubt that anyone, from a pregnant young women to a NFL quarterback would have found the ordeal quite stressful, I think to try to blame it on any one thing, where proof, unless immediate in something like a car accident, is just selfish, wrong, and exploitive.

    All said, my heart goes out to her. I just don’t think it’s fair to sue for something that may well have been a natural occurance. It’s reasons like this so many good things in life have been removed; regulations and lawsuites.

    I tend to agree, Klaire. I think it would be very hard to prove that a miscarriage was caused by the ordeal of that awful ship tragedy. There are going to be many, many law suits connected with the ship wreck. My heart goes out to this woman and to all those injured and the families of those that died on that ship.
