Survivors Pulled From China Boat- Hundreds Missing

Divers pulled three people alive from inside an overturned cruise ship and searched for other survivors Tuesday. Well over 400 people still are missing on the Yangtze River. Fifteen people were brought to safety and at least five people were confirmed dead after the Eastern Star capsized in Hubei Province during a severe storm Monday night with 458 people aboard. The cruise was from Nanjing to the southwestern city of Chongqing, and many of those aboard were elderly. Footage from state broadcaster CCTV showed rescuers in orange life vests climbing on the upside-down hull, with one of them lying down tapping a hammer and listening for a response, then gesturing downward.
Divers pulled out a 65-year-old woman and, later, two men who had been trapped
