    South Korea's deadly ferry accident doesn't seem like it could get any more tragic, but it did on Monday. A civilian diver working the rescue operation died after falling unconscious during a dive. The 53-year-old lost contact with the crew of Undine Marine Industries, a private company, after going into the water near the site of the sunken ferry early on Monday morning. Search efforts to find the 40 passengers still missing have since been suspended by coast guard officials.
