Another Body Recovered from Sunken Ferry

Another body was recovered from the wreck of the ferry Sewol on Friday. Divers have been searching for bodies for more than three months now and the discoveries have grown less frequent.

Search divers found the body of Lee Myo-hee (56), a crewmember, in the third floor kitchen of the ferry in the early morning. Lee was not wearing a life jacket when she was discovered. Her identity was verified through DNA testing.

The last body to be discovered before Lee was a girl on June 24. Ten passengers remain missing and the official death toll from the April 16 disaster stands at 294.
