The Bangladesh Coast Guard (BCG) has rescued some 13 fishermen who were stranded in a boat in the Bay of Bengal off the coast of Cox's Bazar.

The boat went adrift in the sea following an engine failure at around 8:30am on Monday, about 10 nautical miles west of Laboni Beach in Cox's Bazar.

Coast Guard headquarters media officer Lieutenant Commander Amirul Haque said that the fishing boat “FB Ma Moni” with the 13 fishermen set out from Cox's Bazar Ghat No. 6 six early on Monday.

“Around 8.30am, the boat's engine broke down just off Laboni Beach. The boatmen sent out an SOS message to BCG Cox's Bazar station. The fishermen were rescued later that night. They were given food and first aid at our station,” he said.

The rescued fishermen were later handed over to their families and the fishing boat to the owners, the BCG official said.
