Why weren't they saved? Imagine what a tragedy it would have been if 18 white English people had been drowned. Their families on the news, the public inquiries, the monuments and charity campaigns, the crying and wailing and intrusions, and weeks of it.

I doubt these dead Chinese will get more than a few days in the lime light of disaster.
