A floating restaurant capsizes after colliding with another ship in Jialing River,
Southwest China's Chongqing municipality, Sept 20, 2011. The collision occurred after the
ship's cables broke in rushing currents as a flood peak swept the river, a tributary of
Yangtze River. All 11 people on board fell into the water following the accident and all of
them had been rescued later in the evening. [Photo/CFP]
