QUẢNG NINH — Authorities in northern Quảng Ninh Province are attempting to salvage three ships that sank off the coastal city of Cẩm Phả.
The ships sank in two separate incidents last weekend in Quảng Ninh. There were no casualties reported.
On Sunday, the ship Bảo Khanh 19, which was headed for central Hà Tĩnh Province, collided with the ship NB-6589, causing the latter’s hull to crack.
Bảo Khanh 19 crashed into two other boats after colliding with NB-6589. One boat sank on the spot, while the other capsized while trying to head for the shore. The crew members of both ships were rescued successfully.
One day before the collision between the two vessels, a Chinese ship carrying frozen buffalo meat also sank after leaving Vạn Gia port in Quảng Ninh Province. Authorities rescued two crew members and salvaged 540 out of the total 4,650 packs of goods.
The Quảng Ninh Province’s People’s Committee has ordered relevant agencies to co-operate and tackle the situation in the aftermath of the incidents. — VNS
