QUANG NGAI (VNS)— Rescue teams from the central province of Quang Ngai transported 24 Panamanian crew members from a stranded cargo vessel to a guest house of the provincial People's Committee on Saturday.

The vessel grounded on a reef last Friday, rupturing the hull in two places and spilling hundreds of gallons of oil to spill out.

The Viet Nam Maritime Administration said the vessel was still stranded and unlikely to sink, but strong seas may overturn it.

Vanguard Maritime Co Ltd, the owner of the foreign vessel, has sent a lawyer to deal with the case.

Vice chairman of the committee, Nguyen Truong Tho, has ordered the company to salvage the stranded cargo vessel and stop the oil spill. — VNS
