A man died and his son is missing after they were swept away by a flash flood in Cao Bang Province in northern Vietnam Wednesday.

Dang Quay Sinh, 33, was found against a tree around 500 meters from his house while his nine-year-old son Dang Kiem Can was nowhere to be found.

The floodwaters from a nearby stream swept suddenly through a village in Nguyen Binh District at around 1:30 p.m., taking the two along with their house, which had been situated more than two meters higher above the stream.

Cao Bang authorities have given the family VND10 million (US$500).
