Norman Atlantic’s captain still on board

May his bravery and duty be the salvation of his passengers

While the dramatic rescue operation of Norman Atlantic is still underway, the ship, wrapped in flames and being towed to Italy, still has its own captain, 62 year old Argilio Giacomazzi who remains on board.


Although initial information had him having abandoned the ship, and transferred to a hospital in Brindisi, this is proven flase. The confusion was caused after a publication on an Italian website who confused the director of operations with the Captain of the ship.
