Russian Titanic

Divers are working at the scene, where a Russian cruise ship sank in the Volga River on July 10. 

The 56-year old river boat, with a legal maximum capacity of 120, was carrying 207 people aboard, including 25 unregistered passengers. Witnesses said the ship sank in two minutes.

More than 100 divers are going from cabin to cabin in search of bodies. Dozens of children are believed trapped into the music room.
