Student rescued after going missing at sea off Keelung

Student rescued after going missing at sea off Keelung

Taipei, June 9 (CNA) A 17-year-old female student was rescued late Tuesday afternoon by a passing cargo ship in waters off Keelung, 21 hours after she was reported missing. Chang Hui-er (???), who moonlights at a cafe in Sanzhi, New Taipei, boarded an inflatable banana boat with three male co-workers Monday evening. The boat capsized about 20 meters from shore in heavy seas. The men managed to swim ashore on their own, but Chang was nowhere to be seen. Rescuers began searching for her, hopeful that the life jacket she was wearing would help her to stay afloat. (By Lilian Wu)
