HA NOI – Sixteen Vietnamese crewmen, who escaped from the blazing fishing vessel Jeong Woo 2 of the Republic of Korea south of New Zealand on January 1, arrived at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi this afternoon.

They flew from Christchurch , New Zealand and are in good health.

Two injured Vietnamese crewmen remain in hospital in Christchurch. One of them is recovering and expected to leave hospital next week. The other has to stay in hospital.
