  1. Investigator Says Ferry Captain Was Not at Helm

    The captain of the South Korean ferry that capsized was missing from his post at the time of the catastrophic accident, an investigator says. A third officer was reportedly at the helm instead, which has sparked anger from grieving parents. Divers are working to access the inside of the ship but thus far have not found any survivors. Among the 475 passengers, many of whom were students out on a field trip, 179 were rescued, 268 remain missing and 28 have been confirmed dead.
