Search continues for 11 missing after ship capsizes in Liaoning

RESCUERS using two helicopters and 15 vessels today searched for 11 people missing after a boat sank off the coast of Suizhong County, in Liaoning Province.

The marine search and rescue center in northeast China's Huludao City, which administers Suizhong, said that divers have searched the capsized boat, whose bottom is 3 to 4 meters under the water, several times but found nobody.

Rescuers said that the missing people could still be inside the boat and already dead.

The boat was a sand carrier, coded Haida No. 8 and from central China's Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province. It capsized Thursday night.

There were 11 men and one woman aboard the boat. One body was found yesterday.
