Filipino Fishermen Find Dead Chinese Fishermen On Rescue Boats Off Palawan
CHINESE FISHERMEN FOUND DEAD – Filipino fishermen made headlines in local reports as they find two dead Chinese fishermen on a rescue boat in the waters of Palawan.
Luckily, the other two Chinese fishermen on the rescue boat were still alive and were towed back to shore. According to an article from Inquirer, the Philippine Coast Guard reported that a fisherman by the name of Mario Mabuhay found the stranded Chinesemen.
Following this, the PCG Station Brooke’s Point sought help from the PCG Sub-Station Rio Tuba to conduct a search and rescue operation. Luckily, the search and rescue team managed to bring the two survivors to a nearby hospital.
Meanwhile, the two casualties, whose identities had yet to be confirmed, were brought to a funeral home. As per the article, the Chinese survivors were identified as Fu Wanke and Lu Yunian who were from Hainan, China.
Based on their survivors’ accounts, their boat encountered strong waves and harsh sea conditions when they were fishing. Due to this, two of their crew, unfortunately, died while their vessel slowly drifted to the waters of Palawan.
Because of the quick action of the Filipino fishermen and authorities from the PCG, the Chinese Embassy extended its gratitude.
“The Chinese Embassy expressed its deep appreciation to the Philippine fishermen and authorities concerned for providing humanitarian assistance to the Chinese fishermen in a timely manner, which fully reflects their goodwill and the valuable friendship between the Chinese and Philippine people”
