THAI BINH (VNS) — Search for two missing women is going on since a vessel carrying five to seven tonnes of farmed clams capsized last Saturday night in Thai Binh Province.

Nguyen Duy Cam, vice chairman of Thai Binh District's People's Committee, told Vietnamplus online newspaper that immediately after hearing the news, the district and commune authorities and local border guards reached the site of the accident to search for the missing persons and salvage the sunken ship.

Those who escaped from the ship have recovered and are joining the search and salvage efforts.

Local officials said that the depth of the sea at the site where the vessel is likely to have capsized is up to 4m. As the sea waters are cold now, the authorities can only use motor boats to search the surrounding area. — VNS
