HA NOI (VNS) — The authorities are investigating the cause of a waterway accident that killed two people and injured seven yesterday afternoon at Sat Co Bridge in Ca Mau Province's Ngoc Hien District.
The accident occurred in the southernmost province when a speedboat carrying nine people, including seven tourists and a tour guide, from Dat Mui District to Nam Can District, accidentally hit Sat Co Bridge's main pier.
The collision killed 24-year-old Ly Thai Son, the steersman from Ca Mau, and 27-year-old Dang Quoc Dai, the tour guide from Khanh Hoa Province. Neither of them was wearing a life jacket. Their bodies were recovered several hours later by a rescue team.
The lives of the seven tourists were saved, thanks to the help extended by local residents and authorities. They received only slight injuries and were sent to Nam Can and Ca Mau hospitals for treatment.
All seven tourists left for HCM City today. — VNS
