HCM CITY — Two divers have been treated in hospital after getting into difficulties while working offshore.
The men, aged 27 and 31, were 20 metres deep when they suffered health problems in the water off the Trường Sa (Spratly) Archipelago in the central province of Khánh Hòa.
The pair, from the southern province of Bình Thuận, were treated at the Military Hospital 175 in HCM City.
The hospital's Deputy Director Trần Quốc Việt said the men were suffering from low blood pressure, low body temperature and irregular pulse.
They both remain in hospital where they are receiving special care. — VNS
