Earlier, a cargo ship of Le Dinh Nghia and Pham Thi Nguyet from Thang Loi commune of Van Don district sank due to high waves. After receiving the news, the Ngoc Vung Border Station deployed their forces and called on local fishermen to help in the rescue of the distressed ship and its all crewmembers.

After about four hours of searching, they were able to locate and save the ship with eight crew on board. The victims were then taken to the Border Management Post of Ha Mai and taken care of by local military doctors. At present, all the victims are recovering.
