CAN THO (VNS)— A 15-year-old schoolgirl has died after saving three other teenagers from drowning in a canal in the southern Can Tho Province's Vinh Thanh District, the local people's committee chairman, Nguyen Van Phuoc, said on Monday.
The eighth grade pupil, Thai Thi Kim Ngan, and the other three, including her younger sister, were swimming in the Cai San canal when they suffered cramp.
Ngan pushed them to the bank but she failed to make it. Her body was found the next day. — VNS
