A survivor (C-green top) is rescued by divers from the Dongfangzhixing or "Eastern Star" vessel which sank in the Yangtze river in Jianli, central China's Hubei province on June 2, 2015Relatives of more than 400 people missing after a cruise ship capsized on China's Yangtze river were hoping for a "miracle" Wednesday, as authorities said they were racing against time to find any survivors. Another 18 bodies have been recovered, state broadcaster CCTV said, leaving hundreds of mostly elderly passengers still missing and possibly trapped within the ship, which witnesses said sank in a matter of seconds. The ship has 150 compartments and divers are searching each room one by one, CCTV said, while authorities have expanded the search area to include areas around Wuhan, 220 kilometres (136 miles) downstream.
