THANH HOA (VNS)– Border guards in northern Thanh Hoa Province's Tinh Gia District rescued 11 fishermen from two sinking ships off the coast yesterday afternoon.

The ships, both from the central Quang Ngai Province, were on their way to Lach Bang Port to shelter from strong winds when they were suddenly crashed by big waves, according to Pham Quoc Vuong, one of the captains.

On receiving the SOS signal, local border guards, in association with authorities, rushed to the scene and all of the fishermen have since been brought safely ashore.—VNS
