NAM ÐỊNH – The body of Hoàng Khánh Tùng, an 11th-grade student who drowned along with his two classmates while swimming near Quất Lâm Beach in this province on Sunday, was discovered today.
The local rescue team found the boy’s body early this morning after hours of search.
The team had found the body of Trần Văn Hướng, another drowned student, yesterday afternoon. The rescuers are continuing their search for the last one.
The three students were classmates in grade 11C in Tô Hiến Thành High School.
The local authority had warned people not to swim in this area due to the rough sea, high waves and deep holes, but the students ignored the warning.
Meanwhile, in northern mountainous Sơn La Province, three women were killed after their boat was wrecked in the Hòa Bình hydro-power reservoir in Phù Yên District at midnight yesterday.
The boat was carrying twelve people for sightseeing in the reservoir when the mishap occurred.
Local rescuers are working hard to salvage the boat. – VNS
