Stranded fishing vessel brought to safety

DA NANG (VNS) — Ten fishermen from the central city of Da Nang were rescued by local lifeguards yesterday following two days floating at sea after their vessel's engine broke down about 50 nautical miles from the coast.

After receiving an SOS call, the lifeguards kept in touch with the vessel DNa 90303 and called for assistance from other fishing vessels working around the area.

Rescue services in the southernmost province of Ca Mau also salvaged the bodies of three sailors and are continuing their searching for other missing fishermen whose boat was allegedly crashed into by an unidentified vessel. Nine other fishermen on board were rescued by locals soon after the accident. — VNS
