Chinese ferry carrying 456 people on the Yangtze River sank Monday night after getting caught in a cyclone.

Chinese authorities deployed a 140-person frogman team, thousands of soldiers and five helicopters to the site of the sinking, whose death toll could exceed last year’s ferry disaster in South Korea that killed 304 people. – Los Angeles Times reporting
