Five people have been rescued while two others remain missing after a vessel with seven people on board sank in south China's Beibu Gulf, authorities said Wednesday.

The coast guard authority in the city of Sanya, south China's Hainan Province, received a report about the accident around Monday noon, following which it immediately sent a vessel to rush to the scene for rescue. It also notified other agencies for a joint search and rescue.

The rescue operation is still underway. It is however challenged by strong wind that sweeps the area at a speed up to 20 meters per second due to the cold wave.
