More than 70 vessels have been searching and rescuing the waters where buses crashed into the river so far, the Wanzhou District Committee announced early today. The main difficulties facing rescue are deep water and complicated waters. The professional salvage forces such as rescue teams, underwater robots, and hoists are working hard. After the precise location of the vehicle position, the diver will be sent to the underwater location for lifting according to the salvage plan.

It is reported that after the incident, the Chongqing long-distance fleet, the Ministry of Communications Shanghai Salvage Bureau, the ram team, the blue sky rescue team and so on joined in the rescue. The Beijing News reporter learned from a rescue team on the spot that at least four rescuers with a record of diving more than 100 meters have arrived on the scene on standby. These rescuers will start work after the water level of the bus is fixed.

The team members said that the 4 players had participated in the salvage work such as Oriental Star. Such depth can only be achieved through technical diving. Special gases and equipment must be perfected. On the other hand, this kind of deep operation is also a test for divers. Divers can dive up to three times a day, and the operation is still very difficult. He said.
