Quotes

"Currents are very fast in the area. The water is cold. It wouldn't have been different if they were but if the passengers weren't wearing life jackets, they would be washed away very far away. Rescue vessels hadn't arrived."
"The Cheonan sank off the west coast too, but the currents are much faster near Jindo Island where the Sewol sank."
"The on-board announcement said we should stay, but as the ship tilted even further, ferry crew told us to jump out of the ship, while luggage and objects fell to the ground."
"If it struck a reef, it is likely the ship got off course. As the vessel was tilting to one side, it is possible its windows were stuck or there were problems with its doors and passengers could have failed to get out."
