YÊN BÁI — The body of Đinh Hữu Dư, a Vietnam News Agency correspondent in Yên Bái Province, was found near Văn Phú Bridge on Friday afternoon following two days of continuous search.
Dư, 29, was swept away on Wednesday while on duty reporting about the floods, triggered by heavy rains, on Nghĩa Lộ Town’s Thia Bridge.
Due to the strong floods, the bridge, where Dư was standing to record a film about the floods, suddenly collapsed.
Vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tạ Văn Long said Dư’s body was found 100km away from the scene of the accident.
Dư, from northern Ninh Bình Province, graduated from the Academy of Journalism and Communication in 2011.
Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình on Friday asked Vietnam News Agency to send a proposal to the Government asking the latter to award a certificate of merit to Dư posthumously. — VNS
