The Sewol carrying 476 passengers sank in waters off Jin Island, South Jeolla Province, on April 16, killing 304.

One more body was recovered from the sunken ferry Sewol on Tuesday.  It was the first recovery in 102 days since July 18.

The badly decomposed body, presumed to be that of a woman, was found in the fourth-deck female bathroom of the submerged ship at around 5:25 p.m. and was being lifted out, according to officials from the government’s disaster response team.

“The remains were too decomposed to be identified, but we assume they are those of a woman given where they were found,” said a coastguard. Identification is likely to be made later today.

The recovery raised the death toll to 295 and lowered the number of those missing to nine.

Of the 10 missing people, four were women ― three students from Danwon High School and a woman in her 50s.

The Sewol carrying 476 passengers sank in waters off Jin Island, South Jeolla Province, on April 16, killing 304.

The recovery came a day after family members of the missing announced they wanted search work to continue rather than having the ferry salvaged. The decision came through a vote.

On Monday, prosecutors demanded the death penalty for Lee Joon-seok, the captain of the ferry, on murder charges as he and his crew escaped the ferry without attempting to evacuate passengers.
