Aside from the U.S. government data breach by the suspected Chinese, the capsized cruise ship, Oriental Star, in the Yangzi River has also been in the news. From the two articles below, you can read from the victims’ families telling their stories and doing their best to find answers from the government about their relatives. The government is not being as accommodating and quick to relatives as they have historically been, but I suspect everyone on this rescue effort is doing their best, though I would hope they are not hiding negligence to protect key people. There are 14 survivors so far, unfortunately, the dead rises to 396 out of 450 on board.
The first article is from the NY Times – which gives great detailed news and two convenient boxes, “What We Know” and “What We Don’t Know”. I think these two boxes are great to get quick updates if you’re on the run, plus, the “What We Don’t Know” gives readers another level of honesty and reputability in their reporting. The other is from SF Gate – this one is new to me but I find it trustworthy so far. It’s shorter and more recent than the NY Times article. Both have images to see and have different info.
