ĐÀ NẴNG — A crewmember on the Korean-flagged Loihope cargo ship was found dead yesterday, having apparently fallen in the ship’s cargo hold.

The Đà Nẵng-based Maritime Co-ordination and Rescue Centre No. 2 (MRCC2) said they received a message from the ship’s agent at around 12.20pm on April 20, notifying them that Thi Ha Tun, a citizen of Myanmar, had fallen and lost consciousness on the Loihope ship, located 130 nautical miles off the Đà Nẵng coast.

A rescue ship from the centre was dispatched, transporting two doctors from the city’s medical emergency centre. The rescue ship located the cargo ship two hours after leaving the centre’s port.

However, doctors said the victim had died two hours before.

The rescue ship carried the corpse to the city’s General Hospital.

Last year, an Indian captain was rescued off the coast of Đà Nẵng after suffering a heart attack on board the Hanjin California ship, which sails under the Liberian flag. — VNS
