Dr says captain of sunken ferry possible identified himself as passenger

Wrapped in a blanket, he looks just like any of the 174 passengers, fortunate enough to be rescued from the capsized South Korean ship last Wednesday. But this is no passenger -- it is the captain of the stricken ferry, who is alleged to be one of the first to be saved. This doctor treated many of the survivors, including the captain who abandoned his ship. (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) SOUTH KOREA DOCTOR JANG KI-JOON AT JINDO KOREA HOSPITAL, WHO TREATED CAPTAIN OF THE SUNKEN SHIP, JANG KI-JOON SAYING: "I didn't ask him directly, but I remember seeing a list stating him as a 'passenger.' I think he said so when he was questioned (about his status)." The captain and other crew members have been arrested, charged with negligence of duty and violation of maritime law. Hundreds of passengers are missing and presumed dead -- most of them are high school children. Investigations are focussing on whether an earlier evacuation order could have saved lives.
