SHIZUOKA (VNS) —  The Vietnamese man who drowned in waters off Hamamatsu city in Japan's Shizuoka prefecture on Friday has been identified as 23-year-old Nguyen Ba Tuong, an intern at a local corporation.

Two other Vietnamese who remain missing were named as Do Thi Viet Trinh, 21, and Bui Ngoc Diep, 23.

The Vietnamese victims were among a group of seven who had traveled to Tajimacho to swim. However, the waters in that area are considered dangerous and swimming is prohibited.
