Having received the mayday, the border post mobilized ship DNg-31695TS with Pham Minh Hoa at the helm and its troops to the scene. 

After hours struggling with high waves and strong winds, the rescue team approached the troubled ship and took the sailors ashore safely.

Thanks to timely and good care from the medical staff of the border post, the troubled sailors are now in good health conditions.
