A video purportedly showing another fishing boat lending a helping hand to the fishing vessel rammed by the Chinese boat surfaced online.
Netizen Rhodora Rosario Boral posted the video yesterday, June 17, 2019 and wrote the following caption:
E2 Ang anak ko Isang kapitan Ng bangka at Isa sa tumulong sa pagsagip Ng bangkang binangga Ng chaina Ito tinang ninyo Ang video tinutolungan nilang mapalutang Ang bangka

Boral said her son was the boat captain of one of the boats who rescued the fishing vessel allegedly sunk the by Chinese boat .
Boral urged the public to watch how his boat captain son help the sunken boat to refloat.
One of the crews of Rhodora Boral’s son was taking a video as they carried out the rescue operation.
The video lasted around 4 minutes.
In the video, a voice in the background described the sinking boat as rather small, perhaps in relation to their boat.
As shown in the video, the boat was badly damaged based on the debris scattered around the perimeter.
Take note how the boat was almost swallowed by the sea.
As Krizette Chu puts it, “Story is taking a turn for the weirder. This mom of a kapitan says her son helped the bangka na binangga ng China. Sinagip daw. Tapos parang hindi naman mukhang traumatized yung mga tao. Nagtatawanan pa? Or iba yun? “
There is no confirmation yet if this was the same boat involved in the Recto Bank incident.
You may watch the video now.
