PHU YEN (VNS) — Three boys drowned on Tuesday in the central Phu Yen Province, while they were playing in a pond.

The pond had been built by local people in the province's Tuy Hoa Town for the purpose of watering flowers in a nearby cemetery. The boys, aged between 11 and 13, failed to swim to safety in the 500sq m pond, which is 3m deep and has freezing water.

The boys were playing in a group with two girls, who tried to stop them from jumping into the pond.

Funerals are being held for the unfortunate children. — VNS
