HCMC - Three of 14 missing fishermen on board fishing boat BD 97469, which was one of two Binh Dinh fishing boats sinking on the way to storm shelters, with a total of 26 fishermen on board, have been rescued alive by a foreign ship.

The Binh Dinh steering committee for natural disaster prevention-control and search-rescue said October 29 that the cargo ship on its way to Japan found the three fishermen alive and rescued them.

At 5.50 p.m. yesterday, the captain of the Hong Kong ship M/V Fortune Iris called Nha Trang Radio to inform that they rescued three fishermen who are Le Minh Don, aged 20, Phi, aged 35, and Hoai, aged 35. Their health was in stable condition, according to Nha Trang Radio.

Le Minh Don told Nha Trang Radio that among the 14 sailors of fishing boat BD 97469, four are still missing while two died as soon as the boat sank and five others died of exhaustion.
