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 the national emergency number 999.

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