A Chinese cruise ship capsized in the Yangtze river on Monday, and officials have managed to lift it out of the sea but have to deal with a mounting death toll.

The ship was carrying about 458 passengers and crew went it went under on the river. Only 14 people have been rescued so far, whilst the death toll is around 396 as 46 people remain unaccounted for, according to IB Times UK.

Details are sketchy, but some of the survivors, including the captain and chief engineer of the ship, say the ship was caught in a sudden storm, and that the tragedy happened so fast they could barely do anything about it.

The overturned ship was righted by officials on Friday, in an operation that involved welding hooks onto the entire structure of the ship and having it lifted by a crane.

The search continues, but at this point there’s no chance of finding anyone else alive.
