The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Station Aklan rescued two fishermen from a distressed motorbanca amid strong gusts and large waves generated by Tropical Depression “Lannie” between the nearby waters off Sta. Fe, Romblon and Nabas, Aklan on Monday, October 4, 2021.

Vincent Cunihar and Sonny Tayco departed Barangay Colong-Colong, Ibajay, Aklan at around 04:00 a.m. on 03 October 2021 to conduct a fishing venture at the vicinity waters off the Sibuyan Sea.

They decided to go home at around 04:00 a.m. on 04 October 2021 and while underway, they encountered engine trouble which caused them to drift towards the vicinity waters between Sta. Fe, Romblon and Nabas, Aklan.

The PCG Station Aklan immediately deployed its Search and Rescue (SAR) team upon receipt of the distress call from the concerned fishermen.

The rescued individuals were brought to the PCG Station Aklan office for further assistance and inquiry about the maritime incident.

After confirming that they were all in good physical condition, PCG personnel turned them over to the owner of the distressed motorbanca, Nilda Diaz at Barangay Colong-Colong.

In times of inclement weather conditions, the PCG continues to remind fishermen, mariners, and coastal residents to avoid venturing into the sea for their safety.
