HẢI PHÒNG — A fishing boat with a crew of six fishermen was rescued yesterday after its engine broke down the day before, 43 nautical miles from Bạch Long Vĩ Island off Hải Phòng coast.
The boat, NĐ 92647 TS, called for help on Tuesday after its engine stopped working at sea. Also, its pump was out of order and seawater flowed into the boat.
Chairman of Bạch Long Vĩ Island District People’s Committee Đỗ Đức Hòa said local authorities, including border guards and coast guards, quickly created a rescue plan to reach the endangered boat.
