Nguyen Xuan Binh, Director of the Coordination Centre for Maritime Search and Rescue, Zone 4, said at 7am the same day, the center was informed that Haddock Richard Ray suffered acute ileus on the Bahamas-flagged Seabourn Ovation cruiser, which was about 78 nautical miles to the north of Nha Trang waters.
He showed symptoms of swollen bowel, being unable to move and continuous vomiting.
The center contacted the vessel to provide consultation.
As his illness could lead to death, the center deployed SAR27-01 to the spot and brought him to a hospital in Nha Trang.
