A man died and another is still missing after they jumped into a river to rescue a woman from drowning in an apparent suicide attempt in the central province of Thanh Hoa on Friday.
According to local authorities, the 29-year-old woman allegedly came to the Do Len Bridge in Ha Trung Town at noon on Friday. She then jumped down into the Len River.
Two men aged 22, both cousins of the woman, were passing by and jumped into the water immediately to save her.
Strong winds and rough waters swept the trio away.
Local authorities recovered the bodies of the woman and a man later that day.
They are still searching for the other man.
One day earlier, a 23-year-old woman also jumped into the Len River allegedly to commit suicide. Her body was recovered on Friday.
