QUANG NGAI (VNS)— A drifting fishing vessel with 28 fishermen on board reached shore in central Quang Ngai Province's Binh Son District this morning.

The boat was escorted by sea border guards for one day until it was safe.

The vessel broke down with engine failure and drifted in rough seas as it tried to escape the tropical low pressure storm yesterday.

The vessel took off from central Da Nang City on July 20 to go fishing for cuttlefish around the Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelago.

The fishermen are reported to be in a satisfactory condition. -- VNS
