Another man from the cargo vessel Van Don 02, which sank on the southern part of East Sea on December 28, has been saved. This now takes the rescued crewmembers to 12. However, another 11 people from the ship are still missing.

Van Dong Port in northern province of Quang Ninh.

Do Thanh Tu, 26, from Hai Phong City was saved by fishing boat number 95690 on December 29, said Do Trieu Quang, the owner of the Van Don 02.


Mr Quang, director of the Quang Ninh Sea Transport, Import and Export Joint Stock Company, also added that Tu’s health is still rather weak.


Earlier on December 28, 11 members of the vessel were saved by two fishing boats from the southern province of Kien Giang.


Pham Xuan Thuy, deputy director of the company said that the sinking incident might have been caused by a tornado, triggered by a low-pressure system.


The remaining crewmembers that were lost at sea have been identified and they are mainly from Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Thai Binh, Ha Noi and Ha Nam.
