(CNN)At least 34 people have been confirmed dead in a ferry sinking off the coast of Indonesia's South Sulawesi province. Images from the scene Tuesday showed passengers in bright orange life vests clinging to the side of the KM Lestari Maju as it tilted sharply into the water not far from the coast of Bulukumba regency. Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for Indonesia's disaster management agency, said 155 people had managed to swim or be pulled to safety.
