A Filipino seafarer who suffered heart attack while on board a ship Wednesday night was rescued by a Vietnamese marine rescue team.

According to VN Express, Guerrero Rosmeni Nedia, 48, was on a ship sailing en route from Singapore to China when he fell sick in waters around 45 nautical miles southwest of Vietnam’s Paracel Islands on Wednesday afternoon.

The ship’s captain immediately reached out to Vietnam’s Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Centre for help.
