Fisherman's body found in Quang Nam

QUANG NAM (VNS)— The body of a fisherman, who went missing after his coracle capsized in Dien Duong Commune in Quang Nam Province, was found 500 metres from the coast of the commune on Thursday.

Chairman of the commune, Tran Minh Hoang, said yesterday local rescuers found the body of Nguyen Mau, 55, a day after the accident.

He said Mau and five other fishermen were paddling a coracle to their fishing vessel a few hundreds metres off the coast on Wednesday evening when a big wave struck the bamboo boat.
