On the afternoon of February 3, the trawler, captained by Tran Dien, aged 43 in Ngu Phung commune, Phu Quy island district, Binh Thuan province, went adrift about 34 nautical miles off Phu Quy Island. The trawler was at risk of sinking, threatening the lives of all crewmen.

Being notified of the case, coast guard ship 9001 tried its best to get close to the troubled trawler after more than four hours struggling with high sea and strong winds.

The trawler with all crewmen was then towed ashore safely.
