Escape from Vietnam

A Journalist Rescues His Family, Survives Torture and Thai Pirates

When their country fell under Communist control, award-winning journalists of South Vietnam, Duong Phuc and Vu Thanh Thuy, sought freedom after escaping as political prisoners, living as fugitives with their young daughters, drifting on the ocean, falling prey to pirates, and ultimately fighting for justice.
Phuc and Thuy fled their homeland aboard a small fishing boat after many failed attempts.  Once at sea, they were at the mercy of harsh elements and human predators.  Their subsequent rescue and open letter to the international press, which was read at a United Nations News Conference in Thailand in 1980, broke the story of the “boat people” to the world.
While living in San Diego they became internationally known for their lead role in the Boat People SOS Committee, whose missions rescued more than 3,000 refugees in the 1980s and ‘90s.
At the time, Thuy told an Associated Press reporter, “Having been a refugee myself years ago, I know exactly what it’s like to be a refugee and I know what needs to be done.”
Today, they continue voicing their mission of collaboration between Vietnamese and U.S. communities through Radio Saigon: Houston - KREH 900 AM and Dallas - KTXV 890 AM.
