China ship capsize: Footage shows rescue of woman

A cruise ship carrying more than 450 people has capsized in a storm on the Yangtze River in China's southern Hubei province.

The boat reportedly did not send out an SOS signal before sinking.

The four-tier Dongfangzhixing - or Eastern Star - had been carrying 405 Chinese passengers, five travel agency employees and 47 crew.

Jo Floto was watching as state television showed the moment a woman was rescued.
