LAM DONG (VNS) — Di Linh commune police in the central highlands province of Lam Dong have found the body of Nguyen Thi Thanh Huyen, 24, the last of a family of three killed when a raft overturned on Monday.

Huyen, together with her brother Nguyen Van Quang, 26 and his wife, Vu Thi Bich Tuyen, 23, used a homemade raft of 14 barrels to cross the Da Dang river.

However, strong whirlpools flipped the raft over and drowned the whole family.

The bodies of Quang and Tuyen were retrieved earlier.

Communal officials have given Quang's family VND10 million (US$480) to help with funeral expenses. — VNS
