Korean Ferry Disaster

A South Korean ferry, Sewol, has capsized on April 16th. It was carrying over 450 people, mostly high school students, from the port city of Incheon to the island of Jeju, which is popular for it's tourist attractions.

So far 179 people has been rescued, 20 are confirmed died and over 280 are still missing.

Our thoughts and prayers goes out to the victims and their loved ones.

Re: Korean Ferry Disaster

Such a horrible tragedy. It sounds like incompetence on the crew's part by telling the passengers to stay where they were is the reason for the high death count. My prayers go out to the victims and their families.
