DA NANG (VNS) — A crew member of a fishing vessel who suddenly developed convulsions and became unconscious yesterday morning, has been taken to Da Nang's General Hospital for further treatment.
The 40-year-old crew member of the fishing vessel DNa 90372 was safely brought to the mainland ten hours later by the SAR 412 vessel, as directed by the Region 3's Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Centre.
The incident occurred when the fishing vessel was about 100 nautical miles to the north of Da Nang City.
Earlier, the centre had ordered the city's emergency centre to instruct the other crew members via the maritime communication system on giving first aid to their sick colleague, after receiving an SOS message from the fishing vessel. — VNS
