Fishermen from central Vietnam have rescued four people who were adrift in a small boat from Malaysia that had broken down several days earlier.
Two fishing boats from Quang Ngai Province found the boat near Truong Sa islands off Vietnam’s south central coast Wednesday, 10 days after it broke down.
On board were two Spanish tourists, David Hernandez Gasulla, 29, and Martha Miguel, 30, their resort owner Tommy Lam Wai Fin, 44, from China, and his Malaysian employee Armilla Ali Hassan, 23.
They had run out of food, water and fuel.
All of them received care and were in stable condition before being put on a boat back to Malaysia.
Malaysian authorities said their boat had broken down in waters to the north of Sabah on May 2. They had sent out boats and a helicopter since last week to look for them, they added.
