Two people in Saigon are suspected of missing swimmers.
At nearly 3 o'clock this (18th) afternoon, two men in their 20s were swimming in Ham Tin Bay when they were suspicious of drowning and suddenly called for help.
Rescuers were reported to the scene for search and rescue. Government Flying Service helicopters were also dispatched. One person was later rescued and sent to hospital. However, the rescued man was in a coma. During the time he was sent to hospital, he relied on automatic extracardiac press to perform first aid.
Sources at the scene stated that at the time of the incident, the two victims and several friends were swimming in the sea off Xiantian Bay. The sea was relatively heavy at the time. During the incident, the two suddenly shouted for help. They were suspected of being drowned by the waves and then disappeared.
Upon seeing this, the friend hurried to call the police for help, and at one time searched for the missing victim on the sea, and finally found one of them.
Marine police and firefighters arrived at the scene to search, and the Government Flying Service also sent helicopters to fly to assist.
By 4 pm, the helicopter took one of the missing rescued men to the Eastern District Hospital for treatment.
The reporter of "Hong Kong 01" saw in the hospital that the man was in a coma and did not respond when he was sent to the hospital.
