Fishermen Found Adrift, Taken to Safety

According to Reuters, the nine fishermen who failed to return home on wednesday were found drifting in the sea.  Luckily, they are still alive and have been taken to safety along the Paracel archipelago.

The Vietnamese government said that the fishermen’s engine had died, so they used their blankets as sails until a Chinese patrol vessel located them and took them to safety.

When the fishermen never made it back, the Vietnamese government called out China to help in the search.  Luckily. the fishermen held on until the rescue vessels found their trawler.

This is good to hear, as long as it’s all true.  Whether they’re back in Vietnam or still waiting on the Paracel Islands is unknown.  Hopefully the workers will find their way home to their families as soon as they can.
