In particular, while practicing crossing river with inflatable lifeboats near Phu Cuong bridge on the Saigon River, which borders Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong province, cadres and cadets from the Department of Engineering and River-crossing Tactics of the school heard calls for help.

Spotting a person struggling against the waters after falling down from the bridge, engineering cadres and cadets promptly rowed the lifeboats to reach the victim. They later succeeded in saving victim named T.V.P. born in 1992, a resident in Thoi Binh district, Ca Mau province and taking him ashore safely.

The victim was then handed over to the police of Binh My commune in Cu Chi district, Ho Chi Minh City.
