14 Dead in South Korean Ferry

The death toll from South Korea's capsized ferry rose to 14 on Thursday, as rescue crews pulled bodies from the wreck. Of the nearly 500 passengers who were aboard, another 282 are still unaccounted for. Search teams unsuccessfully hammered on the vessel's hull earlier, hoping to hear a response from anyone trapped inside. The ship's captain is being investigated for possibly abandoning the vessel as reports have him as one of the first jumping to safety.
