A BV 5489 fishing boat which was being captained by Nguyen Van Dan, sank after being hit by another vehicle, coded ND 3363, at 18:30 on May 19.

In the aftermath of the crash, the ND 3363 vessel fled the scene instead of making an attempt to save the nine members of the sinking vessel.

After receiving a SOS call at 19:15, the Ba Ria Vung Tau Province Border Guard sent three canoes and three nearby fishing boats to rescue those aboard the sinking vessel.

In total it took an hour for rescue forces to reach the sinking boat and successfully save the crew members.
