Beijing: Fourteen Chinese fishermen have been rescued and search is on for 58 others still believed to be missing after a tropical storm sunk their boats in South China Sea two days ago.
A total of 88 fishermen, all from southern Guangdong Province, went missing after three fishing boats were caught up in Typhoon Wutip, about 330 km from Hainan province.
Fourteen survivors were rescued on Monday, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Zhang Jie, a spokesman with the Hainan Maritime Affairs Bureau, said 22 vessels and four aircraft are still combing the sea for survivors.
