Costa Concordia survivors compare experiences: People who died were told to return to cabins

The captain who fled the sinking ferry with hundreds of students on board is in police custody.

He has been charged with causing the accident that killed at least 29 people.

That number is likely to rise. With 270 passengers still missing, the search is turning increasingly grim. It's been four days since the boat capsized off the coast of South Korea, and it is now completely underwater.

Many people are drawing parallels between this tragedy and the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia that capsized off the western coast of Italy in January 2012, killing dozens.

Georgia Ananias and Dean Ananias were on that ship and among the last passengers to escape.

They are OutFront.

South Korean ferry disaster: Could air pockets save students on ship?

Searchers are in a desperate race to find the nearly 300 passengers who may be trapped inside a capsized ferry off the coast of South Korea.

A police chief tells CNN that authorities are working on the assumption that survivors are still in the ship. Divers are trying to find a way inside the ship that is mostly underwater. Their hope is to find students that are still alive - saved by pockets of air.

Growing desperation, anger as search for South Korean ferry survivors continues

Time is of the essence with temperatures in the water as cold as 50 degrees, and efforts to pump air into the ship have failed so far because of bad weather..
