‘Titanic theme tune played in onboard restaurant as doomed cruise ship started to keel over’, claim Swiss brothers
Of all the stories to emerge from the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster, it’s possibly the hardest to believe.
The human bridge created by British dancer James Thomas and the bizarre antics of captain Francesco Schettino pale in comparison to the claims of two Swiss brothers.
For they have revealed how the theme tune from the film Titanic was playing onboard as it struck rocks and started to keel over.
They said survivors of the disaster were ‘astonished’ by the eerie coincidence which saw them listening to Celine Dion’s hit My Heart Will Go On as the cruise ship began to founder.
The song was made internationally famous in 1997 as the theme of James Cameron’s epic movie about the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet.
