Woman admits she was captain’s lover

‘COSTA CONCORDIA’ DISASTER:Domnica Cemortan testified that she had dined with Francesco Schettino before joining him on the bridge before the accident

AP, GROSSETO, Italy

She testified that the crew member, Ciro Onorato, pushed her onto a lifeboat. Because of the confusion and the darkness on the moonless night, she said she could not say if any passengers were still aboard the ship when she left the Concordia.

Cemortan said she and others aboard her lifeboat pulled several people out of the water.

TRAUMATIZED

She is among those seeking damages from the captain.

“Today I died a second time,” she told reporters outside the court, contending that she had suffered psychological trauma due to the shipwreck.
