The sinking of a ferry carrying civilians should not be happening in today’s world. If for some chance though that it does happen the government needs to be quick with its response and the way they handle the situation. The government in South Korea could have done more to help save more lives. When rescuers arrived at the scene they started rescuing the people already on the outside or on top of the ship, why stop there when in addition to that they should have sent people inside the ship to help guide others to safety. Another aspect they should work on is keeping the families in the loop. The government left families that were searching for their children left in limbo without any news on how the situation was unfolding. I know the families were probably devastated with what was happening but I’m sure they would have rather have been well informed than in the dark and not knowing what to expect. Hopefully tragedies like this one become a thing of the pass.
