HÀ NỘI — Search forces have recovered two bodies believed to be among the 15 fishermen lost after four ships sank on Monday. Rogue waves were appearing in the region at the time as a cold spell struck from the North.

Searchers first found a male body floating off the coast of Hậu Lộc District in Thanh Hóa Province at about 5.50pm on Thursday. It was identified as 31-year-old local fisherman Nguyễn Văn Thành, who was among the four missing after fishing boat TH-90605 lost contact in the area near Bạch Long Vỹ Island in Tonkin Gulf on Monday.

Early on Friday early morning, another body was found off Hải Phòng City. It is believed to be of fisherman Nguyễn Văn Nguyên. Nguyên was one of the five missing on the ship coded TH-91552 TS while it was fishing off the coast.

Search efforts are still underway for the other 11 fishermen, including six fishermen on the two ships TH-1288TS and TH-3202. Their last contact with shore showed that they disappeared in the sea off Hải Phòng and Thanh Hóa.

The authorities have deployed five specialised search-and-rescue ships to different areas to look for the missing men. Hundreds of fishing ships have also joined the search. VNS
