DAK LAK (VNS) – Three teenage girls drowned while swimming in an irrigation pond in the Central Highland province of Dak Lak yesterday.
The girls were identified as 14-year-old Le Thi Nhung, 12-year-old Nguyen Thi Thanh and 13-yer-old Nguyen Thi Hong Nhung, all students of the seventh grade A3 class in Ngo Quyen junior high school in Cu M'gar District.
Dang Van Hoan, chairman of Cu Sue Commune where two of the three girls lived, said the teenagers went to swim in the pond together with two other classmates.
A resident living nearby managed to save only those two after the students accidentally slipped into the deeper part of the pond and called out for help. — VNS
