KHÁNH HOÀ — A Philippine sailor who was seriously injured while working on a Panama cargo ship was brought ashore for treatment at a hospital in Nha Trang in the south central province of Khánh Hoà on Tuesday.
Jamandron Mafred Tagle, born in 1986, had his right hand crushed and was bleeding. The captain of the ship, which was en route from Japan to Singapore, had to seek emergency help from Vietnamese authorities.
Right after receiving the information, the Việt Nam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Centre provided first aid guidance to ensure the safety of the victim. Due to the worsening conditions of the sailor, the centre sent Vessel SAR 272 with doctors onboard to give emergency aid to the victim and bring him ashore for treatment.
According to the centre, over the past month, it has conducted three rescue operations and brought four crewmen with health problems ashore for treatment in Nha Trang. — VNS
