HA NOI (VNS) — Two persons were missing after a boat capsized in a reservoir in the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang on Monday, authorities said.

The two missing persons were identified as a couple from Xuan Hoa Village in Quang Binh District's Tien Nguyen Commune.

The couple was travelling in the boat in the reservoir of the Chung River Hydropower Plant after attending a wedding in Yen Binh Township's Tan Tien Village, when the boat capsized on Monday evening.

Quang Binh District's Police Department has co-ordinated with local authorities in searching for the two missing persons. However, as of Wednesday evening, the rescue forces had not located the victims as the reservoir was too deep. — VNS
