HẢI PHÒNG — The bodies of four missing fishermen who were involved in a collision between a fishing boat and a ship off the northern port city of Hải Phòng have been brought ashore.
The four fishermen are all from Hậu Lộc District, central Thanh Hóa Province.
A fishing boat collided with the Annie Gas 09 Ship at 9.30am on June 9 around Hải Phòng.
Seven fishermen were thrown from the boat.
After the incident, two fishermen were rescued, and one body was found. Four others were missing.
The Việt Nam Coast Guard Command instructed the Coast Guard Region 1 to mobilise CSB 8003 Ship from Region 1’s Maritime Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre to search for the four missing crew members.
The search was challenging due to heavy rain and rough sea caused by Nuri – the first typhoon to affect Việt Nam this year.
The bodies of the four fishermen were found at 5.10pm on Sunday.
Annie Gas 09 Ship, which is owned by Nhật Việt Transportation Corporation in HCM City, was travelling from Vũng Tàu to Hải Phòng when the incident occurred. — VNS
