Boat Carrying 450 People Sinks in China's Yangtze River

A small cruise ship carrying more than 450 people, many of them elderly, sank overnight in the Yangtze River during a storm in southern China. Rescue work was underway but low visibility due to fog was hampering the search. State broadcaster China Central TV reported Tuesday that 8 people have been rescued thus far. The four-level ship was carrying 406 Chinese passengers, five travel agency employees and 47 crew members. It sank in the Damazhou waterway section, where the river is almost 50 feet deep.
