-- welcome back everybody we come back to this Fox News alert because there are new developments in the deadly cruise ship disaster off the coast of Italy we've been watching.
The number of dead now rising -- meet at twelve.
After a woman's body was found on the -- today were also getting brand new video of direct cost of recording.
As divers are able finally to resume their search today.
There are now twenty people still missing and -- hearing for the very first time that the captain is admitting he quote.
Messed up after hitting the rocks that is his quote Amy Kellogg streaming live for us.
-- -- island Italy where the ship remains it is dark Amy how difficult is this search.
-- Jamie with twenty people still missing it's just hard to believe you know because this ship I don't know what you can see behind me that it is quite close.
And it's hard to imagine that that no one can get to those people but the conditions are very rough.
It's been quite com generally though.
The ship slips a bit and they do have to call off the search from time to time.
It's very disorienting as you can imagine inside of that ship which is on its side.
There's things floating and there's always the fear that the divers could go into that space or -- -- -- -- door to shut behind them.
And lock them in so.
Another body identified just today after some explosions.
Gave divers access to a very narrow corridor near an evacuation point.
The woman was wearing a life vest.
We have not we don't know who she is or where she was from.
Also they -- -- the -- safe was found -- that could be quite crucial to investigators.
As well as -- a part of the video camera which was on the bridge and there's been a lot of questions about what was going on.
On that bridge at the time of the crash also Jamie these leaks conversations these transcripts between captain Francesca -- Tino.
And the investigators he's saying the captain is saying I did call.
Costa cruise lines I did say that I'd run the ship aground I messed up.
I needed help I needed a Tug -- I needed lifeboats and needed a helicopter.
I tried to steer away from this rock when I -- coming navigation system didn't detect it.
And I missed it I was late by forty seconds and he explains -- he tried to bring it closer to land so that people could get off but of course.
The bottom line is that people want to know.
Families of some of missing crew members who were there trying to rescue passengers themselves.
Want to know why the captain left the ship that was sitting on Iraq just over here for most of the night supposedly directing a rescue operation that people say that he was.
Or fear that he was more or less checked out now the environmental issues secondary of course to the recovery.
Work of the divers.
People today saying officials say they're not so concerned about fuel.
Coming out of the ship but they say pollution has already been done because that ship is like a city Jamie.
And -- cleaning fluids and there's rescues and there's cooking oil and there's all sorts of -- that has already started to pollute these very pristine waters.
That is the latest from here.
And I appreciate it -- but before -- -- I have I didn't ask you one question that I have not heard asked has the captain been drug or alcohol tested do you know.
Toxicology tests are.
Under way -- and and of course there's a lot of hearsay that he'd been having dinner with wine with this -- -- than woman.
Other people saying no there's no way they saw him city having dinner at some point drinking water so.
Obviously those tests will come back at some point -- and there will be answers there.
It must and I think there's a lot of anger here on the islands about what went on right because -- -- you could drive the ship under the influence if in fact he was I just am curious about his ability and judgment so.
Keep us posted live from the -- thank you so much.
