A Vietnamese fishing boat, DNa 90258, returned to land on August 12, bringing a Filipino fisherman rescued by the boat crew one month ago.

Captain of the fishing boat, Pham Phu Thanh, from Thang Binh district in the central province of Quang Nam and other fishermen found and rescued a Filipino who was in distress at sea in the Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago on July 10.

The 43-year-old Bochito Lagdamin from Negros island of the Philippines was provided with first aid and taken care of by the fishermen until the boat docked on August 12.

The Da Nang provincial Foreign Affairs Department was working with the Philippine Embassy to return the fisherman home./.
