Previously, on September 15, the Vietnam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Center (Vietnam MRCC) received information that the vessel MSC Sveva numbered 3ESP7 of Panama, was en route from Singapore to China.

The sailor receives initial healthcare from Ship SAR 272 medical personnel.

When it reached a location approximately 156 nautical miles Southeast of Vung Tau beach, one of the ship's crew-members met an accident. The captain of the vessel MSC Sveva decided to head towards Vung Tau while requesting assistance. Upon receiving this information, the Vietnam MRCC dispatched Ship SAR 272 for a rescue operation.

At around 5 a.m. on September 16, SAR 272 approached the vessel MSC Sveva, conducted initial medical care, and transferred the injured foreign sailor onto SAR 272. They promptly brought the victim ashore and handed him over to relevant authorities.
