Navy rescues fishermen in distress

The Navy dispatched Sri Lanka Naval Ship (SLNS) ‘Sayurala’ to bring ashore a seriously injured fisherman aboard a local multi-day fishing trawler. The fisherman sustained the injury following an accident, while in high seas about 610 nautical miles (1,129km) off Great Basses Lighthouse, southeast of the country. Having brought the injured fisherman to the Hambantota harbour, he was rushed to the Hambantota hospital for treatment by the Navy yesterday. Picture by Navy Media.
