Boat accident kills five in Zhangjiagang

11 April 2012
Five people have been killed in a boat accident on the Yangtze River in Jiangsu province. Another 14 people were rescued after the vessel, which was carrying 19 construction workers, capsized on 6 April in the Qiganhe section of the river in the city of Zhangjiagang, said a spokesman with the city government.

The workers were from a waterworks construction company that is building a bridge in the area. They were heading across the river to have lunch when the accident happened, according to the spokesman.

Investigators blamed overloading for the accident, though further investigations are under way.
