TIEN GIANG — The People's Committee of southern Tien Giang Province on Thursday awarded a certificate of merit for bravery to a woman and her deceased daughter who chased and caught attempted robbers on the road.

A police report revealed that on the night of January 31, Le Thi Bich Hong, 49, and her 18-year-old daughter were driving their motorbike through My Tho City's Ward 7 toward the Ly Thuong Kiet – Doan Thi Nghiep intersection when two men tried to rip Hong's gold necklace from her neck.

Although the robbers were unsuccessful in their attempt, the two women chased them. When Hong caught up with the bandits, her daughter fell off the motorbike and then died from brain injuries on the way to hospital.-VNS
