A Japanese 75-year-old tourist on a Panama-flagged cruise ship has been saved from stroke off the coast of the southern central province of Khanh Hoa’s Nha Trang City.

Makino Tsuneji showed signs of stroke and being in a coma. At that time, the ship which was travelling from Singapore to China was around 170 nautical miles from the southeast of Nha Trang City’s coast. The area where the ship was faced rough waves and strong winds due to Storm Kammuri.

Right after that, the centre instructed the first aid for the patient and then sent rescue vessel SAR27-01 for the support.

After 14 hours, the Vietnamese ship brought the Japanese man ashore safely. He was then hospitalised for the treatment.
