On February 4, a ship of the Nha Trang Maritime Rescue Cooperation Centre (Nha Trang MRCC) also brought ashore a Philippines national fallen ill at sea.
Daviron Maglaccion, 31, was on board the bulk carrier Echo. Gr en route from Singapore to China, according to Nha Trang MRCC Director Nguyen Xuan Binh.
When the ship was navigating through waters about 200 km southeast of Nha Trang in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa, Daviron Maglaccion suffered from stomach pains so severe that he could neither eat nor drink. The ship then requested Vietnamese assistance to care for the sailor.
The man’s health deteriorated, Binh went on, adding that it was a life-threatening situation.
