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.
