8 killed as motorboat capsizes near Hoi An shore


At least eight people on a tourist motorboat in central Quang Nam Province were killed Saturday after the vessel capsized at sea.

The vessel, which was carrying 39 people from the Cham Islands to the shore, was engulfed by the waves while it was about two kilometers away from the Cua Dai Beach of Hoi An Town.

30 people have been taken back to shore, but eight of them died, said Nguyen Van Son, chairman of Hoi An.

The incident happened amid unfavorable weather conditions. For the past week, sea areas from the south central Binh Dinh Province to the southern Ca Mau Province and other sea regions of the East Sea, known internationally as the South China Sea, have observed strong winds and rough seas.

The Cham Islands, about 18 km away from the Cua Dai Port of Hoi An, is a major tourist destination. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the islands from the shore using motorboats.
