Earlier, a wooden fishing boat with 3 crewmembers (without a license plate) was sunk in the fishing ground off Ngoc Vung commune (Van Don district, Quang Ninh province). Receiving the mayday signal, the Quang Ninh provincial Border Guard sent 6 troops to the scene. After an hour searching, all 3 fishermen were rescued and taken ashore.
