The rescue team temporarily suspending its search of the capsized Italian cruise ship Monday morning after the wreckage slipped slightly. The Costa Concordia ran into a reef on Friday and capsized, setting off a frantic evacuation of passengers on board.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports:

Six people are now confirmed dead with cruise operator Costa saying this morning, the ship's captain wasn't following safety procedures and was too close to the shore. He eventually hit rocks. Passengers report panic on deck.

(Passenger) "One second everything's fine, it was just technical fault. Then chaos."

Rescue workers remain on site although their search is currently suspended after the ship slipped on the rocks its perched on.
