TAY NINH (Biz Hub) — Four people drowned in the Vam Co Dong River in southern Tay Ninh Province of Chau Thanh District when the boat carrying them across the river overturned yesterday afternoon.

The bodies of three male victims, all aged 28, were found last night.

The body of Tran Thi Thu Ha, 26, was found this morning at a depth of 15 metres and 30 metres away from the sunken boat, said the district People's Committee chairman Nguyen Van Hai.

The committee officer noted that the four passengers were teasing each other carelessly, and as a result, the boat had tilted. The driver of the boat swam to safety. — VNS
