SOC TRANG (VNS)— The body of a five-year-old girl was recovered yesterday morning after she fell into a canal on Saturday night in Tai Van Commune, My Xuyen District, the southern province of Soc Trang.
The drowning occurred when Lam Thi My Hang, from Truong Khanh Commune, Long Phu District, was driving home from a wedding on Saturday night with her father and older sister. When they attempted to cross a rickety wooden bridge by motorbike, all three fell into the canal.
Hang's father and sister both survived. — VNS
