PHU YEN (VNS)– The bodies of two workers who were reportedly swept away while working in the tunnel of central Phu Yen's La Hieng Hydropower Plant 11 days ago were found yesterday.

On September 26, three workers, including two Vietnamese and a Chinese, were swept away by rising flood water while they were working a night shift in a tunnel supplying water to the plant's turbine generators.

Five days after the incident, the first body was found one kilometre away from the tunnel, said deputy head of the province's Committee for Flood Prevention and Search and Rescue Bien Minh Tam, adding that the search had been temporarily suspended until yesterday morning because the tunnel gate had flooded and rescuers needed to pump the water out. -- VNS
