The Armed Forces of the Philippines rescued a Filipino fishing boat that ran aground on Pag-Asa Island on Friday, March 11.

The vessel named Queen Lorena-1 and her crew were rescued and assisted by the Philippine Navy and Philippine Coast Guard personnel deployed in Pag-asa Island. All 20 crew members were accommodated safely in the Naval Station Emilio Liwanag.

The engine had minor derangement while making its way towards the sheltered port of Pag-asa Island. Its engine totally shut down, resulting in loss of control and causing the fishing boat to beach on the shallow portions of the island.

MAMSAR Constructions and Industrial Corporation also extended assistance by providing backhoes to help pull the vessel to the shoreline.

The Western Command through Naval Forces West will provide materials and assist in the repairs of FFB Queen Lorena-1 to help her, and her crew members sail back to her home port.
