The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Sailors rescued from sinking ship in South China Sea as Typhoon Chaba rages” – below is their description.
Hong Kong government planes and helicopters went to the rescue of a ship sinking in the South China Sea on Saturday, according to a statement and images released by the official Government Flying Service.
The statement did not disclose the name and origin of the ship but said that about 30 crew members abandoned the ship, approximately 186 miles southwest of Hong Kong during Typhoon Chaba.
Hong Kong’s fliers used two fixed-wing aircraft and four helicopters to the scene and – as of 3pm local time (8am BST) – had rescued three people from the sinking ship and brought them back to Hong Kong for medical treatment.
The fate of the rest of the crew is as yet unknown. Further rescue attempts are ongoing.
