The sinking of the South Korean ferry Sewol occurred on April 16, 2014, en route to Jeju Island from Incheon. The ferry, carrying 476 people, mostly school students, capsized and sank not far from Jindo Island. It appears that most of the passengers perished in this tragic accident. In the following article we are trying to reveal what actually caused the capsizing and could have been a possibility to save the ship.
