According to the authorities in China, a storm that had sunk an engineering vessel two days earlier has resulted in the rescue of a fourth member of the vessel’s crew on Monday.
According to a statement released by the maritime authorities in Guangdong, a member of the crew was rescued by a naval ship early on Monday morning and is now in stable condition. The efforts to rescue people are still underway.
According to accounts from local media outlets, the most recent person to be saved was a member of a crew of thirty that was working aboard the Fujing 001, a China-registered floating crane that was participating in the construction of multiple offshore wind farms.
During the tropical storm Chaba, which had maximum sustained wind speeds of 110 kilometres (68 miles) per hour and was upgraded to a typhoon before making landfall in China’s southeastern Guangdong province, the vessel broke in half and sank on Saturday. Chaba had maximum sustained wind speeds of 110 kilometres (68 miles) per hour.
About 300 kilometres (180 miles) to the southwest of Hong Kong, Chaba made landfall on Fujing 001. According to the authorities in Hong Kong, who had sent two helicopters and an aeroplane for the rescue mission, the vessel was located in a location that made it difficult to conduct rescue operations since it was near to the eye of the storm.
The search and rescue activities are still ongoing as of Monday, but the Hong Kong police have said that the odds of finding the other crew members alive are “low.” As of Monday, 26 more crew members have been reported missing.
According to reports from the state-run news agency Xinhua, an ornamental building structure that had been placed on top of a building in the province of Hebei in northern China collapsed on Saturday, killing eight people. The fall occurred from a height of around 12 metres (40 feet).
In Shijiazhuang, the capital city of Hebei Province, nine individuals who were taking cover from a thunderstorm were killed when a building collapsed on top of them. According to the report, the condition of the one individual who was admitted to the hospital has remained unchanged.
