The search and rescue work of Han chenmei passenger ship was suspended due to the rupture of safety rope

On April 17 local time, South Korean rescue workers successfully entered the interior of the sunken passenger ship and are looking for survivors. After the sinking of a South Korean passenger ship on the 16th, search and rescue personnel tried to enter the cabin more than ten times on the 16th and 17th, but failed

on the 19th, the search and rescue work of the South Korean “years” passenger ship entered its fourth day. By the end of the 18th, dozens of people had been killed and more than 200 people were still missing, including four Chinese citizens. Although rescuers opened the access to the hull and injected air on the 18th, the rescue operation became more and more urgent as the “golden 72 hours” of rescue approached. And a teacher who was lucky to be rescued after the incident committed suicide after leaving a suicide note for self reproach

“golden 72 hours” is approaching and the access channel is open

South Korea’s “years” passenger ship sank on the morning of the 16th, and the rescue deadline of “golden 72 hours” is coming on the 19th. On the 18th, the weather conditions in the sea area where the incident happened were relatively good, and the search and rescue work was fully carried out

according to South Korean media reports, on the morning of the 18th, search and rescue personnel began to inject oxygen into the hull. As the ship’s hull has almost completely sunk, navy divers began to bind air bags for wreck salvage on passenger ships

it is reported that the lifting capacity of a single air bag can reach 35 tons. The use of air bags to assist floating can prevent the ship from sinking further. South Korea plans to bind more than 20 airbags to provide a more stable environment for divers to operate underwater

since the sinking of the passenger ship, rescue workers have tried many times to enter the cabin, but failed. 1t was not until 3 pm on the 18th that the search and rescue personnel successfully entered the cabin of the passenger ship, but no survivors were found

it was reported that rescue workers entered the cabin of the passenger ship on the afternoon of the 18th and opened the cargo cabin door on the second floor. However, the cargo hold was full of cargo, and the “safety rope” of the search and rescue personnel was broken. The search and rescue in the hold lasted only 14 minutes< On the 18th, the Chinese Embassy in South Korea confirmed that there was a fourth Chinese passenger on board, who was a migrant worker in South Korea with an H2 visa and is missing. Earlier, the Consular Department of the Chinese Embassy in South Korea confirmed that there were three Chinese passengers, two of whom were lovers working in South Korea, and one was a Chinese female high school student< With the further development of search and rescue activities, the possibility of finding more Chinese passengers among the missing is not ruled out, according to an official of the Chinese Consulate General in Guangzhou, who coordinated the search and rescue work, on the 18th in addition, shortly after the accident, there were many mistakes in the list of people on board and the number of people rescued released by the South Korean government, which caused a lot of confusion< According to Yonhap news agency on the 18th, the total number of people on the South Korean "years" passenger ship has been updated to 476, 174 people have been rescued, 274 people are missing, and the death toll is still 28. Compared with earlier on the 18th, the death toll remained unchanged, the total number increased by one and the number rescued decreased by five according to the media, the South Korean side has announced that the shipping company and the coast guard of the wrecked passenger ship are sorting out the passenger list. But in fact, before South Korea announced that it was “sorting out the list”, the shipping company had sorted out the personnel list and handed it to the coast guard. According to the report, it is questionable why the South Korean government still does not disclose the most critical passenger list for the confirmation of the missing according to South Korea’s “Central Daily”, after analyzing the 28 bodies found, it was found that some of the victims were not on the previously published passenger list in addition, Wen Zhixing, a girl on board, appeared on the list of the rescued after the accident. But his father Wen said that he “even searched the ditch of Zhendao, but he still didn’t find it.”. Wen said that his daughter’s name has been on the list of rescued people, and he even wanted to delete her name from the list< After the passenger ship crash, the investigation into the cause of the crash continues. Several rescuers said that some crew members, including the captain, abandoned the ship immediately after the accident, and the investigation department also confirmed the video at the time of the accident< On the 18th, South Korean prosecutors and police made a joint investigation and the headquarters formally requested the arrest of Li, captain of the shipwrecked passenger ship "years", PU, third-class navigator and helmsman according to South Korean media reports, the captain Li was suspected of failing to perform his duty as captain or crew member and causing the death of passengers. 1n addition, he was also suspected of abandoning to death, causing the passenger ship to sink due to work negligence, and violating the maritime rescue law according to the newly added relevant laws and regulations in July 2013, Captain Li may face life imprisonment or more than five years’ imprisonment at the same time, two people, including navigator Pu Mou and helmsman, were suspected of abandoning to death, causing the passenger ship to sink due to work negligence, and violating the maritime rescue law it is reported that after the arrest warrant is issued, the prosecution can detain the three persons for up to 30 days for investigation the rescued teacher committed suicide and left a suicide note: ashes scattered in the sea with the students after the passenger ship crash, Jiang Mou, the teaching director who was responsible for organizing and leading the students of Tanyuan high school, was rescued.
