Jindo, South Korea (CNN) — Philippine navy divers retrieved more bodies Monday from inside a ferry that sank last week after colliding with a cargo ship.
The discovery of more victims’ remains brought the number of people confirmed dead from the disaster in the southern Philippines to 65, the Philippine Coast Guard said. Another 55 people remain missing and 750 have been rescued, it said.
Relatives of missing passengers aboard the capsized South Korean ferry gave out DNA samples Saturday as rescuers conducted more dives into the wreckage.
Divers made their way Saturday to the third deck inside the wreckage, where they found three bodies, according to the South Korean coast guard.
They recovered two during a dive later that day. Attempts were under way to get the others.
