A barge carrying nearly 200 oil-pipeline workers capsized and sank Thursday in a typhoon in the South China Sea, killing at least 16 people, rescue workers said. Rescuers battling gale-force winds had recovered 12 bodies by early today, but they said time was running out to find survivors. Among 11 people still missing were four divers, believed to be three Britons and a New Zealander, who were dragged to the bottom of the sea inside a diving chamber attached to the barge.

Rescuers combed the South China Sea for survivors from a capsized oil barge. Divers spotted the barge's missing diving chamber but feared that its four trapped occupants are dead. Worsening weather prevented a rescue attempt. Officials differ over how many of the 195 crew members on board had been saved after the barge capsized during a typhoon. The Singapore-based marine engineering firm McDermott Southeast Asia Ltd. said there are 172 survivors and that 10 people are missing.
