Sewol Tragedy: Three members named martyrs

Three crew members of the Sewol ferry that submerged last month were recognized as "martyrs". All were part-time members - including an engaged couple - who could have escaped but remained in the ferry to help trapped passengers. Those members were Kim Ki-Woong (age 28), Jung Hyun-Seon (also age 28), and Park Ji-young (age 21). These members' heroic sacrifices stood in stark contrast to the captain and most of the crew who were abandoned ship on the day of the sinking.

So far, the death toll is 275 while 29 people remained missing because search and rescue efforts remained hampered by bad weather.
