    There was chaos and confusion on the bridge of a sinking ferry, with the captain first trying to stabilize the listing vessel before ordering its evacuation, a crewman said Thursday. By the time the order came, however, he said it had become impossible to help many of the passengers — although the captain and a dozen crew members survived. The confirmed death toll from Wednesday's sinking of the Sawol off southern South Korea was 20, the coast guard said.
