So according to this tweet by a korean news agency, all those text messages from the people on that sunken ferry to their loved ones are all fake.
"The police obtained all the cellphone information from the missing people in the ferry and confirmed that there were there were no cellphone uses since noon yesterday"
I am so angry about this, I was fooled too. Apparently, some text messages WERE sent from the survivors. But some aren’t. (the seto message that I talked about? It was fake. I was furious, and really embarrassed how this happened and how people felt relieved about the info I’m so sorry I can’t even;; I’m so sorry for making false information spread Never did I imagine anyone would fool around with such things.) As a Korean, I’m really upset about how these things are happening and I just can’t understand why this had to be it purely doesn’t make sense.
I’m sorry to have confused people if I did…and I pray those who are lost led safely back into their family’s arms. Currently, 25 deaths have been identified and have been reported. 271 people are still missing.
