KHÁNH HOÀ — A Bangladeshi sailor who suffered chest pains while at sea is recovering in Khánh Hòa Province, thanks to the quick response of Vietnamese forces. 

At around 3pm on March 29, the Việt Nam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Centre received a distress signal from the Panama-flagged vessel Izumo, which was en route from China to Chennai, India.

The 25-year-old Bangladeshi crewmember was reported to be suffering from severe chest pain when the ship was 103 nautical miles northeast of Khánh Hòa’s Nha Trang City.

The centre kept in contact with Izumo to receive updates on the sailor’s condition and provide first aid instructions. As his health worsened, Vessel SAR27-01 was dispatched, which was performing duties in Nha Trang, with a medical team aboard. 

The sailor was brought to a healthcare station in Nha Trang City at around 1:30am on March 30. — VNS
