New video has surfaced from the first day of the South Korean ferry disaster that allegedly shows the ship’s captain jumping ship.

The South Korean Coast Guard says the main in a dark shirt and shorts in the video is Captain Lee Joon Seok.

According to coast guard officials, the ship’s crew members did not tell rescuers they were crew members.

Meanwhile, divers have renewed their search for more than a hundred bodies still trapped in the sunken ferry.

Weekend efforts were cancelled because of bad weather conditions.

At least 188 bodies have already been recovered.
