HA TINH (VNS) — A three-year-old boy drowned in a river in the central province of Ha Tinh yesterday, the local police said.
Head of the Cam Due Commune's Police Phan Thanh Giap said three-year-old Nguyen Trong L, son of Nguyen Trong Vinh in Cam Due Commune in Cam Xuyen District, drowned after falling into the river.
According to the policeman, the boy was sleeping when his grandmother went to the neighbouring house for some work at about 5pm on Tuesday. The boy woke up and could not find his grandmother. He then went up to River Ngan Mo in the vicinity and fell into the water.
A local resident saw the boy fall and cried for help. Unfortunately, the child could not be saved.
The boy's grandfather had been taking care of him because his parents were working in the southern province of Binh Duong. — VNS
