QUẢNG TRỊ — Two fishermen were rescued at sea by customs officials of Quảng Trị central province on Wednesday.
Nguyễn Quang Hào, 50, and Nguyễn Xuân Quý, 67, from the province’s Gio Hải Commune were fishing on their boat when their engine broke at about 7pm on Tuesday.
Upon receiving notification from the commune’s authorities at 6am on Wednesday, the border guard station of the Cửa Việt Port immediately deployed human resources and a boat belonging to resident Trần Đình Phước of Cửa Việt Town to rescue the fishermen.
Huge waves and strong winds from Typhoon Hato, the sixth storm to hit the East Sea this year, constantly changed the position of the fishing vessel.
At 10.30am on Wednesday, the rescue team was able to reach the vessel at 20NM to the southeast of the Cồn Cỏ island district.
By 12.30am of the same day, the vessel was led back to the shore safely. — VNS
