Its crew-member Duong Van Nghiem suffered from an occupational accident due to the belt of the winch machine. The belt stamped 3 fingers of his right hand (thumb, middle finger and ring finger), and caused a lot of bleeding.

After receiving the patient, the platform’s personnel provided first aid and gave medicine to him. They also guided the patient about further treatment.

By 9:10 a.m. the same day, the patient got stable and returned to his ship.
