Rescue efforts continue on the overturn cruise ship Eastern Star that sank one day earlier. Some 1,000 police, 110 vessels and over 175 divers are involved in the search and rescue operations. The total rescued reached 14 as a few survivors were found trapped within the hull.
Reports say divers found a 21 year old man trapped in a small compartment who was able to use dive equipment to swim out the vessel. Rescuers cut a hole after hearing tapping inside the hull and rescued a 65 year old woman. Another person was found downstream after he had escaped out a window when the Eastern Star capsized. He had grabbed a life vest and floated some 10 hours down the river before being spotted by rescuers.
