SOUTH KOREA – The Ferry Disaster that occurred on Wednesday, is all too similar to the controversy surrounding the disappearance of Flight Mh370. Thousands of miles away in South Korea, a ferry carrying some 475 people sunk — taking hundreds of people off the radar. Most of those individuals, remain missing.
The ship had been carrying a large number of students, who were headed to a field trip on the island of Jeju.
Officials confirmed to Daily News Online that some 28 have been reported dead as of this point, however, hundreds remain missing. Initially, misrepresenting reports published by western media outlets signaled that some 368 had been rescued from the disaster (that was not actually true).
Initially, controversy brewed over the fact that Korean officials could not keep their stories straight as to what happened to the ship truly. Previously published reports claimed that a transcript had been released from the ship, signaling that some 368 had been saved, but none actually had been.
