Video of a call that came from inside the Ferry


Someone from the boat called saying that they were alive. I don’t know if it’s one of the fake calls or not (although i think it is fake), but 4 girls’ names were given during the call. Lee Nayoung, Kim Joohee, Han Seyong, and Kim Yerim.

They’re all said to be alive and in the game room of the boat. They also said that here and there they can hear noises. 

The call also said that people were also stuck in the dining hall.
