Border soldiers found a second body, that of Ho Van Chay on Saturday in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.  He was one of the five fishermen missing at sea, after huge waves swallowed their boat in waters off Lang Co town, three days ago.

On December 17, the body of Tran Chuong had been recovered while authorities were able to save 34 year old Nguyen Quan.


The accident was caused by giant waves and fierce winds lashing the area as a northerly cold front has affected the country for the last few days. The boat was on its way to Chan May Port when it was overwhelmed by the ferocious waves.


The local army personnel and authorities have mobilized 35 soldiers to continue search for the remaining two fishermen.


Phu Loc District has assisted each of the five fishermen’s families with VND3 million.


In the northern province of Hai Phong, 23 members on board the Phu Tan Vessel have gone missing for three days and have as yet not been found. Rescue forces are continuing the search operations.
