He fears that all the women and children went down with the boat. Mr Lavaka says he saw one body being recovered. Matangi Tonga has also reported that the ferry's operator, the Shipping Corporation of Polynesia Ltd, has released a list of 96 people who were onboard the MV Princess Ashika when it left Nuku'alofa.
