DA NANG (VNS)— The Regional Maritime Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre No 2 (MRCC Da Nang) salvaged and towed a fishing vessel into the centre port yesterday.
The fishing vessel, from the city's Thanh Khe District, has been adrift since its engine broke down in the sea some 30 miles off the coast of the Son Tra Peninsula yesterday morning.
Captain Thai Dinh Long and his 11-member crew called for help after spending a few hours attempting repairs, while dealing with rough seas and strong winds.
MRCC's salvaged ship, SAR 412, found the fishing vessel three hours after leaving the centre port.
The fishing boat's crew are safe, as is their cargo of 17 tonnes of tuna and mackerel. — VNS
