Bodies Of 25 Victims Found After Floating Crane Disaster In South China

The bodies of 25 victims have been recovered after a floating crane reportedly sank off south China’s Guangdong Province in early July, the provincial maritime search and rescue center stated on Friday.

On the early morning of 2 July, an offshore wind-farm project’s floating crane was discovered via a monitoring system. It was in danger after the mooring chain broke as it was sheltering from a typhoon named Chaba, near Yangjiang.
