THANH HOA (VNS) — Three people went missing after their fishing boat sank off northern coastal Hai Phong City's Bach Long Vi Island, authorities said yesterday.
The boat was carrying five people when it sank due to strong winds and high waves. Two people, including boat owner Le Van Sen from central Thanh Hoa Province, were rescued by another boat. They were brought home immediately.
Yesterday morning, Viet Nam News Agency's correspondent in Thanh Hoa reported that the three fishermen were still missing.
