Wooden ship sinks after crashing into cargo vessel in China

An oil-fueled wooden ship sank after colliding with a large cargo vessel in a river in China.

Video shot in the province of Guangdong on December 13 shows the wooden ship being dragged forward by the Hongtai 617 which it crashed into in the Xijiang River. Black smoke can be seen rising out of the smaller ship as it slowly sank into the water.

The Guangdong Maritime Safety Administration said a team rushed to the scene to rescue passengers who were on the sunken vessel. No casualties were reported.

The personnel of the cargo ship are now under investigation.
