Did major renovations contribute to ferry's capsizing?

What caused the South Korean ferry to sink?

According to one report today, major renovations were made to the ferry recently - adding more rooms and increasing its weight by over 180 tons.

CNN's Tom Foreman has more on the renovations and whether it could have been a contributing factor to the shipwreck.
