Previously, the vessel’s engine had stalled when taking refuge from storm Kirogi in Quy Nhon waters. The distressed boat was towed to the port of Naval Fleet 48.

* The same day, Ship SAR274 of the Vietnam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Center successfully took patient Nguyen Duc Thanh, the owner and captain of fishing boat QNg 94713 TS, to shore safely. Previously, Thanh had experienced serious abdominal pain when fishing about 50 nautical miles off the east of Da Nang city.

After receiving the information, the center guided the ship’s crew-members to provide first aid for the patient and sent Ship SAR274 to the scene to take the patient ashore for further medical treatment.
