BA RIA-VUNG TAU (VNS) — The Viet Nam Maritime Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre of Region III, along with the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Border Guard, helped seven seamen reach home today.

The seamen had been aboard a sinking fishing vessel on March 25, the province's Tuy Phong District authorities, said.

The fishing vessel, owned by Pham Minh Chien, 58, from Tuy Phong District, sank on March 25 at a distance of about 260 nautical miles off the Vung Tau sea. The vessel, along with the seven seamen, was rescued by a Singaporean ship.

The Singaporean Ship PU2008 had landed at the IRPC Port in Thailand in March 29. The seven seamen were taken to Viet Nam via an airplane and landed at the Tan Son Nhat International Airport in HCM City.

They were then transported home to the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province by the Viet Nam Maritime Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre of Region III. — VNS
