More holes blown in cruise ship to aid search

Two more holes were blown in the Costa Concordia Monday morning to allow divers access to keep searching for bodies. The effort is concentrated on bridge four, about 60 feet under water.

So far, at least 12 holes have been blown in the hull of the stricken cruiseliner.

There is no expectation of finding anyone alive at this stage, more than a week after the ship ran aground.

The children of missing Minnesota couple Gerald and Barbara Heil, meanwhile, came to Giglio again, waiting for any news about their parents. Their family blog had a poignant description of laying a wreath at sea.
