Personnel of the Philippine Navy responded to the incident and managed to bring the fishermen to safety, but the engine of their service boat malfunctioned, prompting the Harbor Patrol of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) to assist in the transportation.

The rescued fishermen were transferred to the SBMA Harbor Patrol units and were later transported to Bravo Pier at the SRF Compound inside the free port.
