BINH PHUOC (VNS)— Border police in southern Binh Phuoc Province have found the body of the last victim in the overturned motorboat that left seven dead on Wednesday.

The seven victims, all from the province's Loc Ninh District, were swept away following the boat's overturning. They were among 40 workers traveling by boat along the Mang River in Loc An Commune to Cambodia to work. The old craft suddenly overturned after being hit by a violent torrent of water 50m off the river's shore. Thirty-three people survived the accident by clinging to tree branches along the river bank.

The border police have called upon individuals to donate VND150 million (US$7050) and 140 kilos of rice to the families' of the victims. —VNS
