Troops towing troubled trawler ashore

Earlier, due to the impact of the storm No. 2, when anchoring in An Thoi Bay, Phu Quoc district, Kien Giang province, trawler numbered KG 93003 TS went adrift at sea after its anchor rope broke off. The trawler's captain contacted Naval Region 5 for emergency rescue.

After receiving the information, Naval Region 5 quickly sent ships of 466, 470, 976 and mobilized 50 troops of Brigade 127 and Battalion 563 to the scene to save distressed fishermen on the sinking trawler.

Despite high waves and strong winds, the ships approached the troubled trawler at 13:00 on the same day and successfully took all fishermen ashore.
