A crew member with a broken leg is rescued from the capsized Italian liner
after some 36 hours trapped on-board.
The Italian rescue services plucked to safety an injured crew member from the cruise ship Costa Concordia on Sunday.
At about 1pm rescue workers airlifted Manrico Gianpetroni, chief purser, hours after making voice contact with him several decks below.
Mr Gianpetroni, who had a broken leg, was lifted from the ship on a stretcher by a helicopter and taken directly to hospital on mainland Italy.
Rescue teams are painstakingly checking thousands of cabins on the Costa Concordia for people still unaccounted for after the huge vessel capsized off Italy's west coast, with more than 4,000 on board, killing at least three people and injuring 70.
