Fishermen rescued after boat stranded
QUANG NGAI — A fishing vessel with 10 fishermen in central Quang Ngai Province yesterday landed safely after more than a day adrift near the Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago, border soldiers said.
The vessel, owned by skipper Ngo Van Be, of the province's Binh Chau Commune, left Sa Ky Port on Tuesday and his engine broke down in bad weather and rough seas more than 40 miles away from the port.
The vessel was found by two local fishing boats following distress calls. — VNS
