Injured Filipino sailors provided with medical aid at Nha Trang
Two injured sailors from the Philippines were rescued off Nha Trang coast recently by a Vietnamese marine search and rescue team.
The Energry Hope ship, which was en route from Singapore to the Republic of Korea, asked for assistance to bring its two sailors ashore for emergency aid when it was navigating through waters about 78 nautical miles southeast of Nha Trang.
The two sailors, whose name Clores Jose Rose Samonte and Candelario Rizaldy Bagdoc, are in critical conditions. One sailor suffered from a headache, bleeding profusely and was in a life-threatening situation while another had difficulty walking.
Upon receiving the information, the Vietnam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Center (MRCC) contacted the vessel to give instructions on how to provide first aid for the victims.
The center dispatched a rescue ship and arranged a medical emergency team in Nha Trang port to rescue the sailors.
The victims were brought to the port and then rushed to a hospital in Nha Trang city for treatment.
