    At least 4 dead, 292 missing after ferry sinks off South Korean coast

    At least 4 dead, 292 missing after ferry sinks off South Korean coast | Fox News

    South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a multi-story passenger ferry sank off that country's southern coast, leaving at least four dead and dozens injured.

    The ferry was carrying 459 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to South Korea's Ministry of Security and Public Administration.

    Lee Gyeong-og, a vice minister for South Korea's Public Administration and Security Ministry, said the 459 people included 30 crew members, 325 high school students, 15 teachers and 89 non-student passengers.
    Gut wrenching.

    I don't think I will be going on a cruise ship anytime after the last few years with the sinkings, disease ridden ships, power cuts etc
