Previously, Ship KN419 of Fisheries Surveillance Squadron No.4 received an order to move to Song Tu Tay (Southwest Cay) Island to take a severely-ill patient ashore when it was doing patrol about 60 nautical miles from Tien Nu (Pigeon Reef) Island.

The troubled fisherman is transported from Ship KN419 to shore.

Fisherman Nguyen Nho, born in 1972 in Tam Giang commune, Nui Thanh district, Quang Nam province, suffered a brain stroke when he was working on board Fishing Ship QN 91379 TS. After being taken to Song Tu Tay Island for emergency, he was then taken to shore and transported to the People’s Hospital 115 in Ho Chi Minh City for further treatment.
