Fading hopes

, April 19, 2014

Messages left by fellow students are stuck to the classroom windows of students missing in the South Korean ferry disaster at Danwon High School in Ansan on April 18. With over 70 hours passed since the ferry "Sewol" capsized, hopes are fading for almost 250 students and teachers from this high school in an industrial town on the outskirts of Seoul. Twenty eight passengers are officially listed as dead, 179 have been rescued and 268 are missing, presumed trapped in the stricken vessel, out of 475 passengers and crew bound from the port of Incheon to the holiday island of Jeju.
