    Search workers on Monday discovered the remains of a victim of the April 2014 ferry disaster still wearing a life jacket.

    The remains were found on the third floor of the salvaged wreck, where passengers other than students from Danwon High School were staying when the ship sank.

    One search worker said, "We discovered relatively well-preserved remains while digging out the mud."

    The last well-preserved remains were found nine days ago and are presumed to be those of Danwon High School student Cho Eun-hwa.

    So far, two of the remains of the nine missing passengers have been positively identified after being discovered in or near the wreck. One is a Danwon student and the other is a teacher at the high school.
