Charred Remains on Board 'Norman Atlantic' Allegedly Belong to Greek Truck Driver

norman_atlantic_brindisiItalian authorities will open the “Norman Atlantic” ferry stern door next week to move all cars out of its garage and continue the search for more victims, it was announced on Wednesday.
According to sources at the prosecutor’s office in Bari, one of the two charred bodies found on the ship allegedly belongs to a 60-year-old Greek truck driver. The second body most likely belongs to an undocumented migrant who was traveling illegally and his name was not on the ferry’s passenger list. Official autopsy results are yet to be released.
The “Norman Atlantic” was carrying over 470 passengers and several crew when a fire broke out in the car parking area on December 28, 2014, after the ferry had left Igoumenitsa in northwestern Greece for Ancona, Italy. At least 11 people died and almost two dozen are considered missing. The Italian-flagged ship was leased by the Greek ferry company ANEK and was towed to Italy for investigation.
