The Chinese embassy thanked the Indian Coast Guard for successfully rescuing a Chinese person from the MV Dong Fang Kan Tan No 2, which was sailing under the Panamanian flag.
According to ANI, the operation took place roughly 200 kilometers off the coast of Mumbai in the Arabian Sea during the night of August 16 and 17. Despite the terrible weather conditions and the darkness of the night, the evacuation was successful.
“Our heartfelt gratitude to @IndiaCoastGuard for the prompt and professional medical evacuation of a this citizen in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Mumbai,” the Chinese Embassy in India tweeted.
On Wednesday, the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre in Mumbai received word that a crew member onboard the research vessel, Yin Weigyang, had suffered a heart arrest and required immediate medical assistance. Communication was instantly established with the vessel, which was en route from China to the UAE, and the appropriate telemedicine guidance was promptly supplied.
“In a daring operation, @IndiaCoastGuard #ALH MK-III evacuates a #Chinese national from MV Dong Fang Kan Tan No 2 around 200 kilometers mid-sea in challenging night conditions and extreme weather.” “The patient reported chest pain and symptoms of cardiac arrest,” the Indian Coast Guard announced on the X (previously known as Twitter).
