Nearly 300 people were still missing Wednesday several hours after a ferry carrying 459, most of them high school students, sank in cold waters off South Korea’s southern coast, killing at least two and injuring seven, officials said.
There were fears, however, of a big jump in the death toll, as dozens of boats, helicopters and divers scrambled to rescue passengers who had been on the ferry traveling to the southern tourist island of Jeju. One passenger said he believed that many people were trapped inside the ferry when it sank. (AP)

There is a ferry ship from Incheon to Jeju that is currently sinking with about 450 people on board, mostly students on a field trip. It’s off the coast Jindo right now (just a few miles from where I live) and the Coast Guards are working as fast as they can.
Please keep everyone in your prayers!
