Filipino man transferred to Philippine Embassy in Vietnam

The Filipino man saved by Binh Dinh fishermen at sea was handed over to the representative of Philippine Embassy in Vietnam yesterday.

Mr Anding Repil (2nd from right) is being handed over to the representative of the Philippine Embassy in Vietnam on May 11.

On April 17, a fishing boat from Hoai Nhon district of Binh Dinh found the 52-year-old Filipino, Anding Repil, adrift in a coracle about 180 nautical miles to the east of Quy Nhon city.

After being cared, he regained his consciousness and was handed over to the Tam Quan Nam border guard post of Binh Dinh in the mainland, where he and the crew of the Vietnamese fishing boat received check-ups.

The vessel’s captain Phan Kha and the crew were hailed for their action, which contributes to the friendship between Vietnam and the Philippines.
