Default Korean Ferry - 04-23-2014, 02:54 PM

This is probably one of the most sad things I've read in some time.

AOL.com Article - Children's corpses reveal desperate attempts to escape Korean ferry


Tl;dr? In desperate attempts to escape the sinking ferry, they tried to climb up the walls. This left with most of the bodies with broken fingers.
Quote:
And most of the bodies found in the last two days had broken fingers, presumably from the children frantically trying to climb the walls or floors to escape in their last moments
Quote:
Of the 476 passengers and crew on board, 339 were children and teachers on a high school outing. Only 174 people have been rescued and the remainder are presumed to have drowned.
The confirmed death toll on Wednesday was 150, many found at the back of the ship on the fourth deck.

And probably the worst part:
Quote:
Several crew members, including the captain, left the ferry as it was sinking, witnesses have said, after passengers were told to stay in their cabins, even though it was time for breakfast. President Park Geun-hye said on Monday that instruction was tantamount to an "act of murder".

Yeah I've been following this since the day it happen; it's such a terrible thing. The captain wouldn't let the passengers leave for 30 minutes (until he escaped). The terrible people in this world...

God has a special place in hell for the overly selfish.

With that being said, I can only wish that the families find peace with the passing of their children and loved ones, and I hope there is some sort of memorial established to honor these poor souls.

RIP

Annoying because the captain told everyone to stay where they were at and that there was no emergency.
In fact, he waited nearly 20 minutes before he told everyone the ship was sinking.

He got his lifeboat ready and wanted to make sure he was the first person out and then alerted everyone to get their life jackets on
but to stay where they were because there was no immediate emergency.

Because of this, he's facing multiple charges of manslaughter and facing life in jail.



Sometimes we just need a friend.
Someone to hold us when you can't stand.
Sometimes even to pretend like you matter for that split second that everything seems to be crashing down.
And sometimes it's just easier to say goodbye.

And this is basically one of the reasons it's one of the saddest things I've read. A lot of these people might have survived if the captain wasn't so goddamn selfish.

He'll be in jail for the rest of his life, if he doesn't get a death sentence.
