Chinese state broadcaster CCTV says more than 1,000 armed police officers, 30 soldiers and 140 navy divers have been sent to the site where a cruise ship sank on China's Yangtze River. More than 40 small boats also were sent to take part in search and rescue operations.

An air force spokesman says China's armed forces sent six helicopters from Beijing and Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province.
CCTV says an initial batch of 39 medical staff from the city of Guangzhou arrived at the site, and an additional 38 are expected later Tuesday.

Relatives of people who were aboard a cruise ship that sank on China's Yangtze River have headed to a government office in Shanghai to try to get more information about the accident. The family members had initially gathered at a travel agency that had booked many of the trips to await word on their loved ones.

Huang Yan, a 49-year-old Shanghai accountant, wept as she told a reporter that she believes that her husband, also 49, and his father, who is in his 70s, were aboard the boat. But she said she couldn't be sure because she hadn't seen an official passenger list yet.

Yan shouted: "Why did the captain leave the ship while the passengers were still missing? We want the government to release the name list to see who was on the boat."



China's official Xinhua News Agency quoted the captain and chief engineer, who were both rescued, as saying the ship sank quickly after being caught in a cyclone.

State broadcaster CCTV says rescuers heard survivors yelling for help from inside a capsized cruise ship on China's Yangtze River after it went down overnight in a storm with 458 people aboard, most of them elderly.

The broadcaster says 12 people survived, and at least five people are confirmed dead.

CCTV says search teams heard people calling out from within the partially submerged ship about 12 hours after it went down late Monday during a windy storm in Hubei Province. Stormy weather is hindering the rescue.

The broadcaster showed rescuers in orange life vests on the upside-down hull, with one of them lying down tapping a hammer and listening for a response.

State broadcaster CCTV said search teams heard sounds coming from within the capsized cruise ship more than 12 hours after it flipped over in the Yangtze River on Monday night, and were trying to confirm whether they were from survivors trapped inside.

Footage from the broadcaster showed rescuers in orange life vests standing on top of the upside-down hull, with one of them lying down tapping a hammer and listening for a response, then pointing downward.
