On the Today show the report from Italy this morning there are only 3 confirmed dead but there are at least 14 passengers missing so there are divers checking the staterooms. Also on the report it was stated that the ship was way off course when it went aground. There is a very large gash so of course the water came in.
From the photos I have seen the one saving thing is that it is water that is not real deep so it should not be sinking much more that it already has.
