South Korea Ferry Sinking Leaves Families In Agony

(Jindo, South Korea) -- At least nine people are confirmed dead following a ferry accident in South Korea, but the growing concern is that the nearly 300 people still missing may all be lost. The waters where the ferry went down on Wednesday are near freezing, the weather is bad and debris in the area isn't helping. The ferry was carrying about 475 people when it started taking on water. Most of the passengers were students and teachers on a field trip.
