South Korea ferry trial: Student describes 'water rushing in'

Students who survived South Korea's ferry disaster have been giving evidence on the second day of the trial of the captain and 14 crew members.

One student described all the ship's lights going out and water rushing in. Another school mate spoke of his guilt at having survived.

While the crew are charged with abandoning ship, the captain and three officers are also charged with "homicide through wilful negligence".

Lucy Williamson reports.
