Workers begin to remove the tons of rocky reef embedded into the Costa Concordia cruise ship's hull, a first step in plans to eventually tow the wreck away from the Giglio Island, Italy, where it ran aground last January, Thursday, July 12, 2012. The whole removal process could take as long as a year. In a broadcast interview Tuesday, Concordia's captain Francesco Schettino described the collision as a "banal accident" in which "destiny" played a role. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia)
