Rescue workers carry a boat for a search after a ship sank at the Jianli section of Yangtze RiverBy Sue-Lin Wong SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Some passengers are still alive inside the hull of a passenger ship carrying 458 people, many of them elderly Chinese tourists, that capsized on the Yangtze River, state media said on Tuesday, in what could be one of China's worst disasters for years. Five bodies had been recovered since the ship capsized in a storm late on Monday, state media said. The microblog of the official People's Daily newspaper said some passengers were still inside the Eastern Star, while the official Xinhua news agency said rescuers could hear people calling for help from inside the four-deck ship.

FILE - In this May 27, 2015 file photo provided by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, workers repair a section of cable that was severed by vandals who stole 500 feet of copper cable from train tracks along the A train subway line south of Howard Beach, in the Queens borough of New York. The crime forced the MTA to suspend train service entirely in the area and replace it with shuttle buses. The theft that shut down the subway’s biggest line and snarled the commute for 100,000 people is only the latest example of a troubling trend on railways nationwide that has soared along with the price of copper. (Metropolitan Transit Authority, Marc A. Hermann via AP, File)NEW YORK (AP) — Longtime New York City subway cops have seen copper thefts before, but last week's heist on a stretch of open-air tracks was particularly brazen: 500 feet of inch-thick cable stripped from the rails in the middle of the night.
