Checking the patient's health

Earlier, Nguyen Van SoOn, a fisherman on board trawler BTh 99495 TS, was asphyxiated due to broken oxygen cylinder while diving down at 17 meters for fish. 

Having rescued the fisherman, trawler BTh 99495 TS immediately took him to the DK1/2 platform for emergency aid. When being transferred to the platform, the fisherman was in the state of unconsciousness, accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, and vomiting. His blood pressure was 130/80 mmHg, and his pulse rate was 90 times per minute.

Approaching the platform, the patient was immediately given emergency aid by military medical personnel. At noon, the patient’s health saw positive developments. The DK1/2 platform is now keeping the patient for further monitoring and treatment.

Born in 1990 in Tam Thanh commune, Phu Quy district, Binh Thuan province, fisherman Nguyen Van SoOn worked on trawler BTh 99495 TS captained by Ngo Phuoc Hau (born 1999 in Ngu Phung commune, Phu Quy district).
