Rescue officials were using a helicopter and several divers on rafts on Wednesday, as they continued searching for survivors after a river ferry capsized in heavy winds in rural south India.

About 20 people swam to safety on Tuesday evening after the ferry flipped on the Godavari River, but anywhere from 10 to 40 people remained unaccounted for.

Grieving family members gathered near the search area, as rescue officials pulled bodies, including that of an infant, out of the water.
