Twelve bodies have been found after a shipwreck in the South China Sea. The Chinese authorities reported that on Monday, two days after the accident.
Of the 27 people who were reported missing, one was also found alive on Monday morning.
A ship belonging to an engineering company broke through tropical storm Chaba off the coast of Hong Kong on Saturday. The bodies were found about 90 kilometres southwest of where the ship sank and have yet to be officially identified.
Three crew members were rescued shortly after the accident.
The search for the missing was hampered by bad weather last weekend. The chance of finding survivors on Sunday was “very small”, according to the rescue services. Seven planes and hundreds of boats are currently involved in the search.
