22.45 hours: the ship is still stable, but the boats are not lowered.
The ship still in order at 22.30 and beyond. All motionless for more than an hour. The boats are stationary and no one starts the to relief. The video shot by Roan, Naval Operations Department of the Guardia di Finanza, nails Francesco Schettino, commander of the Concordia.
According to investigators, if Schettino had given the order to launch the rescue right away, things probably would have been different at Giglio. The rescue would have happened with the ship in order and not inclined, and perhaps the tragedy could have been avoided. But for over an hour, since theConcordia stops at the port entrance, up to at 22.45 or so, the boats are still. And it is precisely then that some passengers throw themselves from the ship. Without remedy. This is what is documented by video shot by the patrol from 22:35 on Finance.
