South Korean coast guards take part in the rescue of a sightseeing ship near the island of Hong-do, off the southwest coast September 30, 2014. Some 110 people aboard the South Korean sightseeing ship were rescued by fishing boats after the vessel ran aground near the rocky island on Tuesday, reviving tragic memories of a ferry disaster earlier this year in which hundreds of people drowned.
