Sailor Saved from Sunken Tugboat

Monday, January 16, 2006
ChinaDaily.com reported that a sailor aboard a sunken tugboat was rescued after a 39-hour stay at the bottom of the Yangtze River. Guo Linyuan, 31, a villager from Yaowan town of Xuzhou, a city in northern Jiangsu Province in East China, was left 14 meters below the water’s surface after an unidentified watercraft crashed into a group of tugboats at about 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday near Zhenjiang, causing three tugboats to sink to the bottom of the river. As his tugboat sank rapidly, Guo was stuck in the accommodation and found an air-tight space of less than 1 square meter in the room. The Zhenjiang Maritime Safety Administration arrived on the scene and began to carry out the rescue and salvage the wrecks. Guo was saved at 10:40 a.m on Thursday and sent to the hospital. A second person aboard, Guo's wife, Wu Xueli, 30, was still missing as of Friday night. (Source: www.chinadaily.com.cn)
