The child is one of 4 people who have been pulled from Bailong Lake in the city of Guangyuan.

The other 3 managed to survive, and are still being treated in hospital.

A search for those still missing is still underway.

The boat itself was equipped to hold at least 40-people, but was only carrying 18 when it capsized.

Authorities say strong gales pushed the ship over.
