Cell phone video on South Korean ferry shows uncertainty on board – CNN.com


(CNN) — “Wow, it’s tilting a lot. We’re tilting to this side. Can’t move.”

“You think I’m really gonna die?”

“What’s going on?”

These are the voices of some of the people on the Sewol ferry as it began to sink off the southwestern coast of South Korea on April 16. A teenage boy on the vessel captured these desperate moments on cell phone video, according to South Korean national TV network JTBC. The teen’s father gave the network the footage after authorities recovered his son’s body and found the cell phone. Its memory card was still intact, JTBC reported.

The network shared a roughly three-minute audio clip of the video with CNN, which translated the exchanges.

It would seem to be the first glimpse at the uncertainty inside the ferry as it made its way from Incheon, a port west of Seoul, to Jeju, a resort island off South Korea’s southern coast.
