VTV.vn - The Vietnam Maritime Rescue Coordination Center has successfully rescued 8 fishermen from the fishing vessel BD 99999- TS after several hours of floating out at sea due to a broken engine.

On March 26th, while fishing in the waters of the Spratly archipelago, 70 nautical miles from Nha Trang, the fishing vessel's engine stopped working.
