South China Sea rescue: Two more fishermen found

Report & Video by Sophie Foster

Two more fishermen have been rescued in the South China Sea after three boats sank in a typhoon on Sunday.

The pair were spotted floating on a life raft by a search and rescue helicopter, before being winched to safety.

They are now in a stable condition at a hospital in Sansha City, while rescuers continue the search for the remaining 70 people still missing.

The fishing boats, all from south China's Guangdong Province, went missing as they attempted to navigate gales near the Xisha Islands.
