      A sailor has died of a serious head injury while assisting rescue efforts after last Wednesday's ferry disaster.

      A Navy spokesman on Sunday said the petty officer second class identified as Yoon (21) fell into a coma after injuring his head while replacing an elevator lamp on the warship Daejoyeong on Apr. 16. He died at 8:24 p.m. on Saturday.

      Yoon had just two months left until his discharge from mandatory military service.
