The ferry, carrying mainly school students, was travelling from the port of Incheon, in the north-west, to the southern resort island of Jeju. Four people are now said to have died and dozens of others have been hurt. South Korean officials had earlier said that 368 people had been plucked to safety, but later said there had been a counting error. They have now revised down the number rescued to 174.

This just hurts my heart. Another report that I read, but don't have the link to, suggests that this may have been a captain's incompetency. The regular ferry captain was on leave of some sort and the captain of this ferry was a temp.
