Earlier, the trawler, captained by Nguyen Van Chien from Hai Trach commune, Bo Trach district, Quang Binh province, went adrift due to engine failure about 120 nautical miles of Ly Son Island.

After receiving the mayday signal, Ship KN 366 was sent to the scene to save the trawler.

Despite bad weather, the ship approached the drifting trawler and towed it with all crew-members ashore.
