The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Station Albay has rescued a half-submerged motorbanca carrying three fishermen at the vicinity waters off Barangay Salvacion, Malilipot, Albay on Thursday, Dec. 2.
The stranded motorbanca set out from Caramoran, Catanduanes, on its way to Tabaco, Albay. While on the water, it was battered by large waves and strong winds, which caused it to become partially submerged.
The accident occurred while MB Ma. Fe Evans was transiting through the aforementioned vicinity waters.
Its crew members rescued the distressed fishermen and coordinated with the PCG in order to provide additional assistance to them.
The rescued individuals were transported to the PCG Sub-Station Tabaco for further examination and evaluation. They were also reminded to avoid venturing into the sea during inclement weather in order to prevent similar maritime accidents from occurring in the near future.
