Sewol Shipwreck Obedience

Most are familiar with Milgram’s experiments in obedience, whereby he found many people will follow orders of those (who seem to be) in authority.

A modern example can be found in the South Korean MV Sewol shipwreck in 2014, resulting in the death of 304 people.  The passengers were primarily school students who were told by crew to stay where they were.
