The fishermen, Ho Thao, Ho Hoang, Ho Huu Loi and Ho Thanh Danh, were onboard the QNg 94764 TS fishing vessel from the central province of Quang Ngai when the vessel had an accident in waters beyond the mouth of the Tonkin Gulf on July 20.

They were rescued by Chinese salvage tug NH203 and then taken to the People’s Hospital in Sanya city in China’s Hainan province for treatment.

During their stay in the hospital, the Vietnamese Consulate General in Guangzhou made regular visits to the fishermen.

Representatives from the office have sent thanks to the hospital as well as authorised agencies of China for their timely search and rescue activities as well as the medical services they gave to the Vietnamese fishermen.-VNA
