The tilted fishing boat bobs on the water. This boat became stranded in the waters off of Liuqiu's Yufu Fishing Harbor on the evening of Nov. 18. There was no one on board.

Rescue Personnel: “Come, come, come. Go up, go up. Board the vessel.”

The Coast Guard Administration and rescue personnel launched a rescue mission. The mission included drones and search and rescue ships, but visibility was poor and the night passed with no sign of the boat's skipper. This boat was registered in Pingtung's Yanpu Township. On the afternoon of Nov. 18, it departed from Yanpu Fishing Harbor carrying only a 50-year-old skipper surnamed Yan. At 5 a.m. on Nov. 19, another fishing boat found Yan and rescued him.

Chen Hsin-nan, Director, Liuqiu Security Checkpoint, Southern Branch, CGA: “We only found the skipper's phone on the boat, and there was no sign of him. The Coast Guard's 7th Patrol Command immediately launched a joint rescue mission. At 5 a.m. this morning, the skipper surnamed Yan was found by a Donggang-registered fishing boat one nautical mile southwest of Liuqiu and rescued.”

Yan had intended to fish for Japanese Spanish mackerel near Liuqiu. His boat struck a reef and became stuck among tetrapods. He was sent to a hospital after his rescue. His vital signs are stable, but he is suffering from hypothermia after spending the night in the water. He isn't strong enough yet to explain what happened.

 

 

 

傾斜的漁船在海上載浮載沉,這艘船18日晚間突然擱淺在屏東琉小琉球的漁福港外,船上卻沒任何人。

救難人員:「來來來,上去上去,上車喔(登船)!」
 

海巡署以及救難人員緊急出動救援,因夜間視線不佳搭配空偵機、海巡艇搜救,但整夜過去還是沒找到人。海巡署清查這艘是屏東鹽埔籍的漁船盛億祥號,18日下午從新園鄉鹽埔漁港出海,船上只有50歲的顏姓船長1人,幸好清晨5點傳來好消息,船長被其他漁船救起。

海巡署南部分署琉球新安檢所長陳信男說明:「在船上只有發現船長手機,但人員失蹤,立即由海巡署第七巡防區指揮部啟動聯合救援機制,實施海陸空救援。」陳信男又提到,「至今晨5點,顏姓船長於小琉球西南方一海浬處由東港籍震順隆漁船救起。」

這艘船原定要前往小琉球附近海域捕撈土魠魚,卻觸礁卡在漁港消波塊,船長救起後送醫,生命徵象穩定,不過整夜在海上漂浮,有失溫現象,也沒力氣再說明狀況。擱淺原因還得等船長恢復健康後才能釐清。
