Hundreds Missing After South Korean Ferry Sinks - NYTimes.com

SEOUL, South Korea — Nearly 300 people, most of them students, remained unaccounted for Wednesday as coast guard and navy divers continued to search a ferry that had sunk hours earlier off the southwestern tip of South Korea.

By mid-evening, three people were confirmed dead, including a high school student and a member of the ferry’s crew. But fears of a major disaster increased as rescued passengers told South Korean news outlets that they believed many people had been trapped below deck Wednesday morning, as the ship tilted rapidly to one side and began sinking.
