外文标题：China ship capsize toll jumps to nearly 400
JIANLI (China): The death toll in the Chinese cruise ship that capsized in the mighty Yangtze river jumped to nearly 400 on Sunday as over 200 more bodies were pulled out, making it China’s deadliest boat disaster in 70 years as rescuers culminated their four days of relief operations.
The body of the youngest victim of the tragedy, a three-year-old girl, was among the hundreds more bodies retrieved from the murky waters after disaster response teams stabilised the cruiser in an upright position, according to officials in the rescue headquarters in Jianli, central China’s Hubei province.
So far 396 bodies have been recovered from the four-storey cruise ship while a total of 46 people are still missing. Authorities requested that river traffic and others along the river alert them if they noticed any floating bodies.

Very sad for the relatives of people who perished.
Sad and unfortunate incident. RIP for the families lost their lives or injured. Sad for holiday elders to meet their waterloo. How come the cruiser was allowed to sail in storm and surviving captain may confess before he is executed by Chinese police for negligence !!
This happens only with “MADE IN CHINA” products! How many of you Indians want cheapo Chinese goods badly???
