昨日,在韩国海岸,一艘名为Sewol的大型客运渡轮沉没在平静的海面,当时渡轮搭载了450多名乘客,大多是高中生,到一个旅游岛上去露营。官员目前只确认164人已获救,列为死亡的有四个,剩下约300名乘客仍下落不明。夜幕降临时,Sewol已经天翻地覆,几乎完全沉到海平面以下 -只有 船头的一小部分仍然可见。路透社援引一名幸存者的话说,“公告板告诉人们留在原地……那些被困的人。”由于亲属焦急等待,官员们在夜间最黑暗的时刻短暂停顿后,恢复了救援行动

South Korea Ferry Sinks, Hundreds Missing

Yesterday, off the coast of South Korea, a large passenger ferry named the Sewol sank in calm seas, while carrying more than 450 passengers, mostly high school students on an overnight trip to a tourist island. Officials currently confirm only 164 have been rescued, another four listed as killed, leaving approximately 300 passengers still missing. By nightfall, the Sewol had turned upside down, sinking nearly completely below the surface — only a small part of its bow still visible. Reuters quoted one survivor as saying “The on-board announcement told people to stay put… people who stayed are trapped.” As anxious relatives await word, officials have resumed rescue operations after a short pause during the darkest hours of the night.[23 photos]
