DA NANG (VNS) — Coast Guard officers of the Second Regional Coast Guard based in Quang Nam managed yesterday to bring a troubled cargo vessel to Da Nang.
Hoa Mai-25 issued a distress signal on December 12, while carrying 1,500 tonnes of cement from Hai Phong to Da Nang in stormy weather. When the ship was anchored near Con Co Island, its anchor broke.
A Coast Guard rescue boat found the vessel 40km off the coast of Da Nang. Nine sailors were on board. — VNS
