As the slow rescue mission continues, divers discovered the latest group of victims wearing their life vests, "all crammed into a single room meant for 30," indicating that they were listening to instructions from the crew as the ship went down. So far, 185 bodies have been recovered since the April 16 accident, and another 117 people are still missing.
