Chaos follows the South Globally renowned novelist

Korean ferry accident

passes away at the age of 87

Boat sinking leaves
25 people dead with
270 passengers still
MOKPO, South Korea (AP) -
There was chaos and confusion
on the bridge of a sinking ferry,
with the captain first trying
to stabilize the listing vessel
before ordering its evacuation,
a crewman said Thursday.
By the time the order came,
however, he said it had become
impossible to help many of the
passengers - although the cap-

The confirmed death toll
from Wednesday's sinking of
the Sawol off southern South
Korea was 25, the coast guard
said. But the number was
expected to rise with about 270
people missing, many of them

trip. Officials said there were
179 survivors.
Divers worked in shifts to
try to get into the sunken ves-
sel, but strong currents would
not allow them to enter, said
coast guard spokesman Kim
Jae-in. The divers planned to
pump oxygen into the ship to
help any survivors, but first
they had to get inside, he
The water temperature in
the area was about 12 degrees
Celsius (54 degrees Fahren-
heit), cold enough to cause
signs of hypothermia after
about 90 minutes of exposure.
Kim said three vessels with
cranes are being brought in to
help with the rescue and to
salvage the ferry, which sank
not far from the southern city
of Mokpo and now sits with
just part of its keel visible.
The captain of the Sawol,
identified by broadcaster YTN
and the Yonhap news agency
as 68-year-old Lee Joon-seok,

was questioned by the coast
guard and made a brief, vid-
eotaped appearance, although
his face was hidden by a gray
"I am really sorry and deep-
ly ashamed," Lee said. "I don't
know what to say."
Kim Soo-hyun, a senior
coast guard official, said
officials were investigating
whether the captain got on
one of the first rescue boats.
Kim Han-sik, president of
Chonghaejin Marine Co., the
ship's owner, also apologized
separately, bowing deeply and
saying through his tears, "I
committed a sin punishable
by death. ... I am at a loss for
words. I am sorry. I am sorry."

the northwestern coast of
South Korea on Tuesday for

There were 475 people aboard,
including 325 students from

Ansan, which is near Seoul.
It was three hours from its
destination Weadnesday morn-
ing when it began to list for an
unknown reason.
Oh Yong-seok, a helmsman
on the ferry with 10 years of

The Spanish Royal Academy,

ebrated the novel's 40th anniver-
sary with a special edition. It had
only done so for just one other
book, Cervantes' "Don Quijote."
Like many Latin American
writers, Garcia Marquez tran-
scended the world of letters. He
became aheroto the LatinAmeri-
can left as an early ally of Cuba's
revolutionary leader Fidel Castro
and a critic of Washington's inter-
ventions from Vietnam to Chile.
His affable visage, set off by a
white mustache and bushy grey
eyebrows, was instantly recogniz-
able. Unable to receive a U.S. visa
for years due to his politics, he
was nonetheless courted by presi-
dents and kings. He counted Bill
Clinton and Francois Mitterrand
amonghis presidential friends.
Garcia Marquez was born in
Aracataca, a small Colombian
town near the Caribbean coast on
March 6, 1927. He was the eldest
of the 11 children of Luisa San-
tiaga Marquez and Gabriel Elijio
Garcia, a telegraphist and a wan-
dering homeopathic pharmacist
who fathered at least four chil-
dren outside of his marriage.
Just after their first son was
born, his parents left him with
his maternal grandparents and
moved to Barranquilla, where
Garcia Marquez's father opened
the first of a series of homeopathic
pharmacies that would invariably
fail, leaving them barely able to
make ends meet.
Garcia Marquez was raised for
10 years by his grandmother and
his grandfather, a retired colo-
nel who fought in the devastat-
ing 1,000-Day War that hastened
Colombia's loss of the Panama-
nian isthmus.
His grandparents' tales would
provide grist for Garcia Mar-
quez's fiction and Aracataca
became the model for Macondo,
the village surrounded by banana
plantations at the foot of the Sier-
ra Nevada mountains where "One
Hundred Years of Solitude" isset.
