Yeah this is killing me reading some of the updates. people stuck inside still alive sending texts "we're still alive". rescuers can't reach them, it took them days just to get into the main cabin or something and even then they had to get out because the waters got too rough. now the boat is completely under.
i'm just surprised how helpless we are in this situation. You'd think they could get like 3 tugboats and just pull it near shore. maybe a helicopter and some inflatable underwater balloons all over the ship to keep it up longer. its like all they're able to do is send divers in who can't even get into it while watching it slowly sink.
There should be some kind of protocol for this kind of thing, but I agree it sucks at how helpless people really are in situations like this, what are the chances...
fkd up .. the captain or someone else in charge told everyone not to move because it would be 'dangerous' .. they said that mostly everyone obeyed their words because that's the culture they're brought up in .. to listen to their elders .. sealed their fate .. some decided not to listen .. and they got out alive
I heard at the times of the incident the Captain was not actually steering the ship it was one of his underlings that was supposedly very inexperienced. It's still the Captain's responsibility. Don't be surprised if he commits suicide. Koreans are not bashful about suicide.
