FILE — In this Sept. 16, 2013 file photo, men work on the Costa Concordia ship as it lies on its side on the Tuscan Island of Giglio. One of the tanks fastened to the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner to help prepare it for removal to land has shifted, Tuesday, may 6, 2014. The consortium overseeing the operation said in a statement that the cause was under investigation and that there was no damage to the ship. Workers fastened the first tank to the starboard side of the ship last week. The tanks, 19 in all, were being filled with water to help stabilize the Concordia, now resting on an artificial seabed after it was set upright in September. (AP Photo/Andrew Medichini)
