A seriously wounded Chinese fisherman was saved by a rescue helicopter sent by China's Ministry of Transport on Sunday.
The fisherman got one of his arms broken when fishing on international waters in a vessel registered in Weihai, Shandong Province.
The ministry's Beihai No. 1 Rescue Aerocade received a call for help at 9:30 a.m. and immediately sent a helicopter and an airplane to border areas on North China Sea.
At 3:15 p.m., rescuers found the vessel and brought off the wounded fisherman in less than 10 minutes. The fisherman was sent to hospital after the helicopter landed at Weihai Airport.
