Nine Vietnamese fishermen who were rescued from an accident on the East Sea on December 10 landed at the Ho Chi Minh City-based Tan Son Nhat International Airport on December 14.

They are in good health condition.

Tran Dac Thien, captain of the fated ship, said that the distressed fishermen were brought to Hong Kong ( China ) by a cargo ship on early December 14.

While in Hong Kong , the fishermen got help from the Vietnamese Consulate General and local concerned agencies to complete necessary procedures to return home within the day.

Ship owner Nguyen Thanh Thuan said the total loss is estimated at 900 million VND (43,300 USD). He also said luckily, all fishermen on board are safe and have returned home safely.-VNA
