Korea should better support victims' families - U.S. expert
A top U.S. transportation expert has suggested that Korea should bring the development and improvement of family assistance plans to the forefront of it strategy in dealing with transport-related disasters like the Sewol-ho ferry sinking.
In a recent blog post on top U.S. political website 'The Hill', Jamie Finch, former Director of Government, Public and Family Affairs at the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, said the ferry sinking shows how Korea, and many other countries around the world, have yet to reach even the minimum standards in addressing families' needs after such tragic accidents.
Pointing out how some of the families of the Sewol-ho victims were traumatized even further when several of the bodies were returned to the wrong families, Finch says the U.S. should use its influence to press Korea to embrace a more thoughtful emergency response that mirrors the openness and standards seen in the U.S. and most of the West.
