Chinese President Xi Jinping has ordered that no efforts be spared in rescue work and Premier Li Keqiang was heading to the scene of the accident in central Hubei province, the official Xinhua news agency said. Xinhua, citing the Yangtze River navigation administration, said those rescued from the Eastern Star included the ship's captain and engineer, who said the vessel sank rapidly after being caught in what it said was a cyclone.
