NANNING - Rescuers on Tuesday continued searching for four people who went missing after their pedicab fell into a flooded river Monday night during heavy downpours triggered by Typhoon Haiyan in South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

The four were among six people aboard the pedicab. The vehicle veered off a flooded road section in Hengxian County and fell into the Daliao River at around 6:30 pm. Two of the passengers managed to reach the bank.

More than 300 people have been mobilized to comb the riverside and search via speedboat for the four missing people.

Typhoon Haiyan has been lashing Guangxi since Sunday, bringing heavy downpours and tidal waves that have led to at least six deaths in the region.
