BẠC LIÊU — The bodies of two fishermen were discovered in a fishing vessel that sank in the waters off the southern province of Bạc Liêu last week, local marine rescue officials reported yesterday.
The dead fishermen were residents of the local Gành Hào Town. They were identified as Trần Tiên, 37, and Hồ Xuân Lộc, 44.
The fishing vessel was towed towards shore as part of the accident investigation.
The vessel, with 8 fishermen on board, capsized last Friday due to bad weather. Six of the men were rescued by local fishermen. — VNS
