Two fishermen have gone missing after their fishing boat was hit and sunk by a ship off the north-central Vietnamese province of Quang Tri on Sunday.

The fishing boat, whose captain was 36-year-old Ho Luong Thanh from north-central Quang Binh Province, encountered the accident at around 4:00 am.

Thanh and his four crew members fell into the ocean following the collision.

Three of them, including Thanh, drifted for about three nautical miles before being rescued by a nearby fishing boat.

The other two fishermen, namely Ho Van Thuy, 61, and Nguyen Khanh Huy, 32, remain nowhere to be found.

Maritime border guards in Quang Tri Province said on Monday morning that the three survivors had been brought to the mainland.

They had no idea which ship had hit them as it was too dark.
