One of the reports says his 'decision to abandon his post before all the passengers were evacuated and seek safety on board a lifeboat that most enraged Italians after the disaster' and he had said 'he had slipped and fallen into the safety of the lifeboat'.  I wonder if his sentence would have been less if he hadn't done and said that.

Such a terrible tragedy and one that should never have happened :(

I'm a Shipmaster and can tell you that it's the Master's DUTY, in the event of such a disaster, to ensure that everybody is safely off the ship before he leaves the ship himself.
