Remains found in Sewol ferry identified as a student

세월호서 수습 유골, 치아 감정 결과 단원고 허다윤양 확인

Remains found in Sewol ferry identified as a student

 

A set of bones found intact in the wreck of the Sewol ferry was confirmed to be that of a student who went missing in the 2014 disaster, officials said Friday.

 

The remains found on Tuesday underwent multiple analyses by medical examiners and have been confirmed to be Heo Da-yoon. Officials said they checked the body's teeth and compared them to the dental records of the missing victims.

 

It is the second set of remains found during the search operation to be identified.

 

On Wednesday, authorities said a bone fragment found near the site of the sinking earlier this month was confirmed to be that of missing teacher Ko Chang-seok.

 

The 6,800-ton Sewol ferry sank off the country's southwestern coast near Jindo island in April 2014, claiming the lives of 304 people, mostly high school students on a school excursion.

 

The hull was raised from the bottom of the sea and put into dry dock at a local port in Mokpo, some 410 kilometers south of Seoul, last month. The bodies of nine people, including four students and two teachers, were missing.
