A fishing vessel was stuck for four hours on Wednesday morning under a bridge in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province bordering HCMC.

While passing Co May Bridge that connects Ba Ria and Vung Tau towns at around 8:30 a.m., the fishing boat with 20 crew members got stuck due to high tide.

As the tide kept rising, the boat had no way to escape, prompting police to come to the rescue.

Rescuers employed a tug boat and pumped water into the vessel to raise its load and so enlarge the gap between it and the bridge.

After four hours, the boat was released with no damage caused.

Co May Bridge lies 20 kilometers from beach town Vung Tau. It is 258 meters long and 38 meters wide.

HCMC – The HCMC Department of Health has written to the 115 Emergency Center, hospitals and Covid-19 treatment facilities asking them not to let patients die at home as a result of being denied admission or delays in being transported to hospitals for treatment.

Besides, the municipal department ordered these units to readily admit and treat Covid-19 patients, the local media reported.

The hospitals, Covid-19 treatment centers and the 115 Emergency Center must be open round the clock so that residents can access treatment or medical checkups.

In addition, doctors were told to prepare for screening to determine which patients need a referral for treatment.

Moreover, the municipal department asked hospitals and healthcare centers to proactively add more beds, stretchers and oxygen masks to serve patients to prevent their condition from worsening due to delayed treatment.

The heads of these units were tasked with informing their employees of the order and asking them to work toward minimizing the Covid-19 death rate. The heads will assume responsibility for cases in which patients die at home as a result of hospitals denying treatment or delaying admission.

Four men rob garbage collector of motorbike in Hanoi

Published

Four men were caught on CCTV robbing a sanitation worker of her motorbike in Hanoi early on Tuesday morning despite the victim’s plea for mercy.

A police official in Nam Tu Liem District confirmed to Tien Phong (Youth) newspaper later the same day that officers were investigating the case and hunting for the suspects.

The crime took place at around 3:25 am, when Le Thi Tram, a 39-year-old employee of Hanoi Urban Environment Company (URENCO), was driving her motorbike to collect garbage.

After reaching a section of Dai Mo Street in Nam Tu Liem District, Tram saw four men who were traveling on two motorbikes in the opposite direction.

They screamed at the woman as they passed her, before turning around and blocking her path.

One of the men threatened Tram and forced her to hand over the key of her motorcycle.

Although Tram cried and begged for their mercy, the men eventually left with her vehicle.

The victim later reported the crime to local police.

“The motorbike was old, but my husband and I had worked very hard to afford it,” Tram said during an interview with Tien Phong.

“It was the most valuable asset of our family.”

As Tram is still traumatized by the incident, her husband has been taking her to work and assisting her in the job.

Tram is part of a 23-member Dai Mo sanitation team, which is under the management of URENCO, said Lai Thi Minh Ly, the team leader.

Most of the sanitation workers in the team have to work at midnight or very early in the morning.

“I have told my team to be cautious while on the job. Hopefully, competent authorities will soon catch the suspects,” Ly stated.

Tram was gifted a new motorbike by the Nam Tu Liem District police unit on Wednesday morning.
