Sewol Tragedy: Death toll 187, 115 missing

As of 3:00PM Korean Standard Time, the confirmed death toll from the Sewol ferry tragedy is 187 while 115 people remained unaccounted for, which remains unchanged since the early hours of the search and rescue operation in the disaster zone. The search and rescue operation in the disaster zone has been hampered due to bad weather, strong currents, and high waves. It's been 11 days since the ferry capsized, marking as one of the worst maritime disasters in South Korean history, but the Coast Guard, Navy, and civilian divers continued their efforts on the third and fourth deck of the sunken Sewol ferry.
