Rescuers have recovered the bodies of four schoolboys who allegedly drowned in a river in the central province of Quang Nam on Sunday.
The boys, aged 11-13, reportedly came to the Da Giang River in a rural village to fish early Sunday morning.
As they did not come back home, their families rushed to seek them at 1:30 p.m. the same day.
Rescuers found three bodies in the river on Sunday afternoon. The last body was recovered at 8 a.m. on Monday.
Local authorities said heavy rain occurred in the area one day before the incident, raising the water in the river to a high level. Rescue work was also hindered on Sunday evening due to heavy rain.
