Captain, 2 crew members arrested

19 Apr, 2014

Captain Lee Joon-Seok, the third mate (unnamed), and helmsman Cho Joon-Ki are arrested.    Head bowed, the captain tries to explain some of his actions and apologizes to the families of the victims before being led off to jail.  Then Cho tells reporters that the ship’s steering gear turned farther than it was supposed to.  The third mate, who was at the wheel at the beginning of the accident and navigating the route for the first time, says nothing as she is led away.
