As the patient fell into a comma due to heavy bleeding, the captain called for help.

On receiving the mayday signal from the trawler, the Vietnam MRCC sent Ship SAR 274 with a medical team to the scene.

It took the rescuers five hours to reach the fishing boat. They then provided first aid and shipped the sick fisherman ashore.
