420 people still missing in boat disaster in China

from The Washington Post

Divers battled submerged debris and crews sliced into the upturned hull of a Chinese cruise liner in a last-ditch hunt for survivors after the ship capsized with 456 people on board. So far, just 14 people are known to have survived the disaster on the Yangtze River. At least 19 bodies have been recovered, leaving more than 420 people unaccounted for — most of whom were retirement-age tourists. Under the river, a tumble of beds, tables and chairs blocked access for divers bringing up bodies — and seeking any survivors — inside the capsized ship. Some cabin doors were also locked, officials said, making the job of finding survivors and retrieving bodies significantly harder. more
