DA NANG (VNS) — All nine crew members of a fishing boat that broke down at sea on Saturday returned safely to land yesterday after being rescued by the Viet Nam Marine Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre.

The boat captain and owner Tran Van Cuc reported the incident to the centre and asked for assistance on Sunday because they could not fix the engine and they had little food and water. Cuc's boat headed from the central Da Nang City to sea for off-shore fishing on January 28, and its engine stopped functioning last Saturday.

It took the rescue boat about five hours to reach the boat at night. — VNS
