Helicopter to the rescue

A rescuer descends from a helicopter during a joint drill in the Huangpu River off Lujiazui in Shanghai yesterday. The drill involved maritime, police, firefighting and fishery units as well as more than 200 volunteers dealing with a simulation of a collision between a cruise ship and a cargo ship in which the liner was badly damaged and at risk of sinking with passengers seriously injured or falling into the water. The Shanghai Maritime Rescue Center organized a full-scale rescue using boats and helicopters.
