The Bangladesh Navy, in the small hours of Wednesday, rescued as many as 17 fishermen from a trawler that broke down in the Bay of Bengal.

An officer from the naval headquarters here told UNB that the fishing trawler, ‘Tamanna Munshi-4’, ventured into deep waters with 17 fishermen on board on August 1.

That very day, the engine of the boat went out of order, forcing the fishermen to remain stranded in the sea for three days.

A team from the Bangladesh Navy rescued the stranded fishermen five miles away from Kutubdia point after the master of the trawler made an SOS call to national emergency number 999.

The rescued fishermen have been given first aid and food, the officer said.
