Costa Concordia captain revisits ship he is accused of abandoning

The captain of the Costa Concordia went back on Thursday to the cruise ship he's accused of abandoning. Francesco Schettino was captain of the ill-fated ship in January of 2012. That's when it crashed onto rocks off the Italian coast, killing 32 people. Schettino faces multiple charges including manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship. Five others have pled guilty and were sentenced to prison terms. (SOUNDBITE) (Italian) CAPTAIN FRANCESCO SCHETTINO SAYING: "Some people have already plea bargained, admitting their guilt. I have come here to show my face, and I am taking part in the trial. So before talking about who his guilty and who is responsible, I am still going through the trial, and the others have already admitted their guilt."
