In addition, the local dragon boat crew did not wear the habit of wearing life jacket, similar to the dam is more common, the dragon boat team often has the behavior of the dam, but never heard of the past.

Most people on board were rowing with their paddles, and two people stood near the bow. One of them beat the drum, accompanied by cheering and cheering. The dragon boat runs upstream against the river. The video obtained by No. 37 of the heavy case group shows that when the ship goes to the dam, the front half of the hull passes through the ship, and then moves back down the water after a little pause, and then is parallel to the dam. The crew members pause the paddle first and then continue to row. After about 10 seconds, the hull suddenly turned over and the crew fell. After that, the crew of the ship dispersed and others tried to arrange the rollover hull. The dragon boat head washed over the dam. About two minutes later, another ship came down from the downstream to the side of the boat. When the position of rollover occurs on the top of a boat, the direction of movement also changes, gradually parallel to the dam. After shaking several times, the second ships also turned over. Then you could hear someone crying and calling for an ambulance. The dragon boat is turned over. At 18:30, the inspector learned from the Guilin municipal government that in April 21st, the villagers in Xiufeng District had privately organized the Dragon Boat practice on the Peach Blossom River, which had been reported but had not been passed. The accident occurred a day before the incident, and the results of the accident occurred, and the public security organs had controlled the 2 people of the lead organization. According to statistics, around 13:40 that day, 2 Dragon Boat rollover occurred, 57 people fell into the water. As of 19:20, 40 people were rescued, 5 people sent to the hospital for treatment, and have been out of danger. As of 22:30, the ships rescue ended and the statistics killed 17 people. The water is muddy and silt in the waters of the incident The squad leader of the Guilin fire brigade, who participated in the rescue, said that about 70 fire officers and soldiers were searching for help in the middle and lower reaches of the Peach Blossom River. While searching and rescuing the upper reaches of the river, the fire officers and soldiers are blocking the downstream area and coordinating drainage to reduce the water level. The water has been discharged two meters deep, he said. Under the waters of the incident, there was silt and the water was muddy. The river had been felt for one or two times. A villager said that the incident was located at a rolling dam on the south side of peach blossom Jiangqiao in Xiufeng road. This is a dam in the Peach Blossom River. Due to the recent local rain, the water depth of the incident is more than 2 meters. The scene leader of the blue sky rescue team said that in order to facilitate the salvage, rescuers intercepted the river at the top of the dam, and the water level below the dam dropped to 1.5 meters. To 20:20 Xu, the upper reaches of the river have been over the top of the dam, and the water level is still rising. In addition, the incident was swift, and the river was muddy, which increased the difficulty of salvage. The rescuers are using fishing hooks to salvage the river within 100 meters long and 60 to 80 meters wide, the person in charge said. Data show that the dam is a water retaining structure, and its main function is to raise the upstream water level and intercept mud and sand. When the water rises, the excess water can overflow to the downstream. Why is the drop of water in the dam so heavy? The head of the blue sky rescue team said that the drop of the dam is not large, but the water flows from the height to form a whirlpool and suck the drowning person, and it is difficult to get rid of it once it is sucked. In addition, those who had caught the scene did not wear life jackets, which also increased the risk of casualties. Many experts who participated in the rescue said that under the condition of no standard life jacket, the possibility of boiling line escape is low. Even a standard life jacket is difficult to complete without training. At the same time, when involved in the flow area, it is possible to enter the overturned hull, increase the difficulty of getting out of difficulty, and lose energy in a few minutes. Dragon Boat players dont have the habit of wearing life suits. The official website of the Guilin Municipal Sports Bureau showed that the local Dragon Boat activities were popular in ancient times.

Tan Guian revealed that the Dragon Boat Team in Dun Mu village tried to rush past the rolling dam when it passed, but because the water flow was more urgent and whirlpool, the dragon boat capsized.
