Upon receiving the news, the Border Post sent troops as well as called on fishing boats nearby to rescue the troubled boat. Due to a strong current, the provincial Border Guard Command had to direct a ship of Fleet 2, which was on duty in Cua Dai waters, to rush to the scene and towed the troubled boat ashore safely on the same day.
