Fisherman found clinging to a basket in the middle of the South China


Recommended Posts

A Cambodian fisherman who was rescued by Brunei navy forces after being found clinging to a basket in the middle of the South China Sea returned home safely yesterday. Voeun Vonn had jumped into the ocean on Tuesday last week, fearing for his life after an argument with crew mates.

“I spent one night and half a day swimming in the ocean without food or fresh water,” he told Khmer Times. “I was using a plastic basket to help me stay afloat. I still don’t know why they wanted to kill me.”

Mr Vonn’s mother, 46-year-old Sum Thouth, said her son had been working as a fisherman and moved to Thailand in August 2016. “I was so glad to be able to see my son again. I will organise a Buddhist blessing ceremony and invite monks to sprinkle holy water on him so that it will keep it safe from harm,” she said.
