QUẢNG NAM — Search and rescue forces are still working to find a missing male worker of the Đắk Mi 2 Hydro-power plant when he slid down the river of Đắk Mi in the central province on Sunday.

Deputy head of the disaster prevention board of Phước Sơn district, Nguyễn Văn Thanh said Lê Văn Thành, 34, from Hà Tĩnh Province, who is a worker at the plant, and another worker were getting vegetables at a farm on the river bank when he suddenly slipped.

Thanh said the swiftly flowing river during the flood season in the central region washed him away.

He said the accident occurred in the section of river near the hydro-power plant in between the two communes of Phước Lộc and Phước Sơn.

The board will release more information once the search has concluded.

In September, two workers went missing when a water valve of the Sông Bung 2 Hydropower Plant was broken in Nam Giang district of the province.

Search and rescue forces found only one victim, while the other is still missing.— VNS
