    THE ILL-FATED LAKONIA - THE OWNERS HAVE REVISED FIGURES TODAY (FRIDAY) OF THE SURVIVORS AND LOST ... 80 PASSENGERS AND 11 CREW DEAD, 34 PASSENGERS AND 30 CREW MISSING.

    THE NUMBER OF KNOWN SURVIVORS IS 886 - 537 PASSENGERS AND 349 CREW, OUT OF A TOTAL OF 1,041 ON BOARD (651 PASSENGERS, 390 CREW), THE GREEK LINE SAYS.

    THESE PICTURES OF THE GUTTED CRUISE LINER WERE TAKEN BY A BRITISH NAVAL PHOTOGRAPHER FROM A HELICOPTER OF THE AIRCRAFT-CARRIER CENTAUR.

    AT THE SAME TIME, AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE BY BOAT TO GET A BOARDING PARTY FROM THE CENTAUR ONTO THE LAKONIA BUT THE HEAT KEPT THEM OFF.

    THE CARRIER PICKED UP 52 VICTIMS FROM THE SEA, AMONG THE PEOPLE IN EVENING DRESS WHO HAD DIED FROM EXPOSURE OR DROWNING. THEY WERE LANDED AT GIBRALTAR BY THE CARRIER AND BURIED THERE YESTERDAY.

    A NORWEGIAN SALVAGE SHIP, THE HERCULES, HAS THE LAKONIA UNDER TOW AND IS REPORTED TO BE NEARING GIBRALTAR.
