KHANH HOA — An emergency rescue yesterday probably saved the life of a Russian seaman on a vessel 195-nautical miles off the Nha Trang coast.

The 44-year-old man, who was aboard the MV Brirholl-Lucky, on its way to Singapore, was suffering from acute appendicitis.

The captain phoned the Maritime Rescue Centre (Zone 4) and asked for help.

Swift action by a craft from the Maritime Rescue Centre in Zone 4, the SAR27-01, got the man to hospital in central Khanh Hoa province. — VNS
