While sailing on a routine voyage to South Korea the Malaysian flagged LNG carrier Seri Bijaksana heard cries for help from the sea, reported Tradewinds. The LNG carrier, an Amver participant since 2008, rescued the four fishermen after they ran out of fuel off the coast of the Philippines. They were reportedly adrift for three days.
The crew of the Seri Bijaksana handed the survivors over to the Philippine Coast Guard.
Bravo Zulu to the master and crew of the Seri Bijaksana for a job well done and in keeping with the highest traditions of mariner helping mariner.
Has your ship recently rescued survivors? Why not let us know about it and see the story on the Amver blog!
