Stranded fishermen left reeling after ordeal

Update: September, 25/2012 - 09:55

QUANG NGAI (VNS)— A stranded boat with seven fishermen on board reached the shore in central Quang Ngai Province's Binh Son District yesterday, after more than a week of assistance from another ship.

The vessel, PY 90045TS, from the central province of Phu Yen became isolated while fishing for tuna near Truong Sa Archipelago on September 14. All the crew and boat were then rescued by sea border guards and taken to Song Tu Tay, one of the islands of Truong Sa.

A ship in Quang Ngai voluntarily set sail last Friday to bring the fishermen back to the mainland. All the men received health check-ups at a local hospital before returning home in Phu Yen. — VNS
