The country's rescue agency said 43 people were on board when the ferry sank off the coast of Makassa on Thursday. This system separates the islands of Sulawesi and Borneo. 17 people have been rescued alive in this incident. They also said that efforts are being made to rescue others.
Shipping has become a common occurrence in Indonesia. In the Southeast Asian nation of 16,000 islands, maritime security is still weak.
