Sewol Tragedy: Confiscation of documents

It's been two weeks since the sinking of the Sewol ferry, known as the worst maritime disaster in South Korean history, and as the investigation on what went wrong continues, a joint investigation team confiscated some of the documents and recordings from the day the Sewol ferry sank from the local Coast Guard in Mokpo city to look whether officials properly handled the disaster at the first stage. They've retrieved the first distress call from an 18-year-old boy, who was on a field trip with more than 300 other students and teachers, who dialed the South Korean emergency number 119, which put him through to the Coast Guard and asked for help.
