HA NOI (VNS)— Three crewmen from a sand-carrying vessel sunk by huge waves off the coast of Hai Phong City's Cat Ba District on Sunday have been rescued, according to the National Search and Rescue Committee.

Six local border guards were dispatched to take the victims to the shore.

In another incident, four fishermen were left adrift when their ship's engine broke 15 nautical miles from Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelago on Sunday. Rescuers had contacted the victims by yesterday morning, according to the committee.

The rescue force also gave prompt instructions for how to save a sailor who had a working accident near the archipelago a day earlier. — VNS
