BEIJING, April 25. /ITAR-TASS/. China’s embassy in South Korea stated on Friday that another body of a Chinese citizen, the fourth one, was found in the hull of the Sewol ferry that crashed in the Yellow Sea.

“The dead body has been found today nearly at 15:00 local time /07:00 GMT/,” a representative of the Chinese embassy’s consular department reported.

80 divers are taking part in the search operation. On Friday, they have focused on searching the cabins of the third and fourth deck, where, as the search operation’s management supposes, could have been staying the major part of unfound passengers.

The 6,825-tonne Sewol ferry, which had sailed out of the western port of Incheon on Tuesday, April 15, ran into trouble some 20 kilometers (13 miles) off the island of Byungpoong and sank off the southern coast. The ferry carried 475 passengers and crewmembers, 325 of which were students of a school in the South Korean city of Ansan. The death toll reached 185 people with another 117 reported as missing.
