At 9am on the 16 this month, passenger liner “SEWOL” that was heading to Jeju Island from Incheon, sank, 21km away from Byeongpung Island near Gwanmae Island, Jindo-gun, South Jeolla Province. The disaster is all the more miserable since most of the passengers of the ferry were the students of Danwon High School located in Ansan, who were going on a school trip.
The death toll of the disaster as of 1:30am on the 18 is confirmed at 25 and 179 out of total 475 passengers have been rescued. Still, 271 people are missing.
