The family of a young boy who reportedly died after falling off a hill in Da Nang yesterday have brought his body back home to Ho Chi Minh City for the funeral, officials said.
The body of the six-year-old boy was found at the mouth of Am Phu (Hell) Cave, one of the longest and most mysterious at the tourist site of Ngu Hanh Son, Sunday morning.
His family discovered his absence at around 10:45 a.m. while they were visiting Thuy (Water) Mountain, one of five near Da Nang.
The family reported this to managers of the tourist site. Minutes later some tourists spotted his body in Am Phu Cave 60 meters below at the base of the hill.
Authorities said they would put up safety nets at dangerous spots at the tourist site to prevent more such accidents.
They paid the family VND100 million (US$4,500).
Luan’s body was brought by plane to Ho Chi Minh City the same night.
Further investigations are ongoing.
