GIA LAI — The bodies of two young brothers were found in a lake on Sunday after the pair went missing in the Grai District in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai the day before.
Lê Quang Đạo, chairman of Ia Grăng Commune, confirmed to vietnamplus.vn online newspaper that two children, one 10-years-old and his eight-years-old sibling went swimming at a lake in nearby commune, O Re, early Saturday without telling their parents.
They raised the alarm when the brothers didn’t return home later that evening.
Local authorities mobilised all available forces to search for the children after they were reported missing.
The pair was found drowned in a 3m-deep and 100m-wide lake that was created several years ago by stone mining companies. — VNS
