    At least there were some heroes on board http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/18/world/...vor/index.html

    Based upon the water temperature, it'll be surprising if they find anyone alive inside the ship, but the ship is large and with any luck there were some larger airpockets inside.

    My condolences to the families ....

    Nonsense. Money not for missing children, that's will go to their family, for the searching actions, for people still living, help them to continue to live.

    Such a tragedy. Money will help families with funeral costs as well.

    Although that's true I can't help but say that's a little insensitive of you.

    I'm sure the families will appreciate the money.

    I just hope Yuna's fans aren't going to use this opportunity to bash or shame those skaters who aren't as well-off as Yuna for not donating.

    No. The tragedy in Korea and Yuna is Korean, so that's makes sense for her to help her country. Other skaters are not responsible for this situation, so many thanks to them if they care, if not it's still absolutely fine.

    Yes, I'm sure YuNa would love the magical power to turn the clock back and rescue all the passengers, but this isn't something that anyone can do. So she does what she can, as anyone would. Why put a negative spin on it?

    I am so sad for such tragedy to happen. When I heard the news, I hope miracle will happen but time is against us. So sad for these children. I know their families will appreciate Yuna's good will.

    That's very generous of her. Children who survived, but lost their parent/s could use the money for their education as well.
