VŨNG TÀU – Five crew members from a sunken vessel were rescued and taken back to the mainland Monday morning, the Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Centre Zone 3 said.
The fishing vessel sank off the coast of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province at 6.30pm on Sunday due to strong winds and big waves.
A rescue ship was mobilised when the centre received information about the sunk vessel. At 7.30pm, all the crew members were saved and sent back to the mainland for treatment.
Nguyễn Đình Kết, captain of the vessel, said that it sank so quickly that the crew members could do nothing but jump out.
On the same day, the centre announced that it had found the body of a crew member, who had fallen into the sea on Friday.
At about 5pm, Võ Hải Biên, captain of a fishing vessel, fell into the sea while anchoring his vessel on Bến Đầm Bay in Côn Đảo District.
The body was taken to the local authorised agency. – VNS
