To plan the passenger rescue, the Italian Coast Guard had to be contacted.
and crew members from the luxury ship's 40-meter (131-foot) length after it started to sink in the Ionian Sea.
The horrific video depicts how the boat sank beneath the waves.
It came into difficultly around 15km (nine miles) off the coast of Catanzaro, on its way from Gallipoli to Milazzo.
All four passengers and five crew members were safely rescued,
but worsening weather conditions made it impossible to tow the ship to the port, the Coast Guard said.
