A candlelight vigil was held last week on the Daniel Carter Beard mall in downtown Flushing to honor the memory of those lost in the ferry accident in South Korea.

The event was organized by Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Flushing) and was attended by Assemblyman Ed Braunstein (D-Bayside), left, and Se-joo Son, the consul general of South Korea in New York, standing next to Braunstein.

An estimated 300 passengers, many of whom were high school students, died when an overloaded Korean ferry capsized and sank off the coast of Jindo Island on April 16. Authorities are still recovering bodies from the scene.

Welcome to the discussion.
