Đà Nẵng — A ship from the Regional Maritime Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre No 2 (MRCC Đà Nẵng) rescued an ill fisherman and took him to Đà Nẵng yesterday.

The centre said the fisherman, Phạm Văn Nguyện, 40, from Quảng Nam Province, had a stroke onboard a fishing boat at sea off the Hoàng Sa (Paracels) Islands on Monday. He was half paralysed by the stroke.

The rescue ship left the port on Wednesday and found the victim after 13-hours traveling in rough seas.

The fisherman has been treated at the city’s General Hospital.

Last Sunday, a ship from MRCC2 also rescued Singaporean Lew Sze Kai, a crew member of Sam Young ship of the Cook Islands, with a skin infection. — VNS
