SHENYANG, June 1 (Xinhua) -- Rescuers have found one victim's body after a fishing boat accident in China's Yellow Sea, which left seven people missing last week, authorities said Tuesday.
Authorities have dispatched a helicopter and dozens of rescue vessels, in addition to passing commercial ships, to help with the rescue work over an area exceeding 115 square nautical miles.
Rescuers managed to lift the boat out of the water and pump water out on Monday but failed to find any of the missing personnel inside, though they are still cleaning the storage cabin. They found the victim's body in nearby waters.
The search efforts continue.
