A representative of a yacht company, who is accused of causing a high school student to die by submerging in order to remove barnacles, said, "I'm sorry I couldn't make you a captain until the end."

Person A met with reporters before the interrogation of the suspect before arrest held at the Suncheon Branch of the Gwangju District Court in Suncheon-si, Jeollanam-do on the afternoon of the 21st.

To the question 'Do you admit the charges?', Mr. A briefly answered "yes".

When asked, 'Why did you do a dangerous diving job?', he said, "I'll tell you later," and went to court with the Coast Guard.

Mr. A, who came out of the court after 40 minutes, did not answer the reporter's question and was escorted by the Coast Guard. The

Coast Guard applied for an arrest warrant on the morning of the 6th, believing that Mr. A had made Hong Jeong-woon (3 years of specialized high school) dive to remove the barnacle attached to the bottom of the yacht

, killing him

at Woongcheon Marina in Yeosu.

As a result of the Coast Guard investigation, it was revealed that Mr. A instructed Hong, who does not have a diving license, to do the diving work, and did not even follow the basic safety rules of diving in a group of two.

When the arrest warrant is issued, the Coast Guard plans to conduct additional investigations into the field training course for Mr. A and how Hong was put into diving on the day of the accident.
