South Korean Navy honor guard carry the coffin of Han Joo-Ho, a 53-year-old Navy warrant officer and a veteran of the Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) during the funeral ceremony at a military hospital in Seongnam, south of Seoul on April 3, 2010. Han lost consciousness on March 30 while struggling to reach the sunken vessel. He was rushed to a medical facility aboard a nearby US ship but died on arrival. Han’s death deepened the nation’s grief as the search continued for the missing 46 seamen, who were aboard the patrol combat corvette PCC-772 Cheonan that sank last week. The other 58 crew members aboard the vessel were rescued, but the hope of finding more survivors was dimming as rescue efforts have been thwarted by poor weather and visibility.
