CCTV footage has been released of rescuers saving seamen off China's Northeastern coast.

A sand mining barge had capsized in rough season on Wednesday morning, leaving eleven sailors missing.

The footage shows rescuers flying to the scene via helicopter and finding three survivors.

They had scrambled up onto the hull of the overturned ship.

They were suffering hypothermia after exposure to the cold waters, but are expected to make a full recovery.

The search continues for the missing sailors.
