Latest on the Ferry Disaster

There are no words to describe the horror of the ferry tragedy in South Korea this week. In the disaster's aftermath, there will be lessons to be learned by captains and boaters everywhere that will hopefully prevent the future loss of life.

Scanning the multiple headlines this morning, there are reports that only one of nearly fifty life rafts was deployed; announcements were made warning passengers to stay put instead of abandoning ship; students on board were trapped behind windows that could not be opened. 

As of this writing, the most recent insights into the ongoing rescue mission can be found on the BBC and CNN, and Reuters.
