HÀ NỘI — A team has been set up by the central province of Khánh Hòa to organise the salvage of a fishing boat which was reported to have sunk in waters off Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province.
Ship BV 95838 TS reported that it discovered the sunken vessel with only its prow seen above the water at 10.40 last Friday.
The site was about 160 nautical miles to the southeast of Ô Cấp cape, Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province, but no one was seen around the area.
The family of the owner of the KH 90208 TS said the ship with 10 fishermen left Hòn Rô Port in Nha Trang City, Khánh Hòa Province, on December 27 last year, and they last contacted the ship on December 29 last year.
Immediately after receiving the report, the Office of the Central Committee for Natural Disaster Response and Search and Rescue, and the Border Guard’s Staff have instructed their relevant forces to work to verify the report.
Fishing vessels operating near the location have also received instructions to look for the missing seamen. The Navy and the Coast Guard have also ordered their ships operating in the waters to search for survivors. — VNS
