The South Korean ferry  Sewol capsized and sank off South Korea, sending 459 passengers, many of them school children, down to the icy seas.

The death toll of this ferry disaster has now jumped to 260, with 42 people still missing, the South Korean government reported on Monday.

And now, a haunting video has surfaced where a victim of the catastrophe, a school girl recorded the few moments before her death on her cell phone, before she perished along with several of her friends.

Though the images of the children are blurred to protect their identities, their chilling screams of panic and fear are heard throughout the video.

One little girl cries, ” I want to see my mom” – while one of her friends try to reassure her by saying, ” Don’t worry, We’re gonna live. I’ll see you then”

The higher death toll comes after eleven more bodies were retrieved from the fourth deck of the Sewol ferry, according to South Korea’s Government Rescue Headquarters, while more than 100 divers are combing the ship room by room, looking for the more missing bodies.
