Officials in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on Monday said that they have discovered the bodies of two girls in a river by their house, a few hours after their family reported them missing. 
The girls, 7 and 13, must have slipped from the wet floor of the bathroom, which is right next to the Bo River, when they were taking a shower at around 6 p.m. on Saturday, authorities said.
Family members of the girls, who are cousins, began searching for them after they disappeared from the bathroom.
Vietnam records 3,500-4,000 drowning deaths among children each year, ten times higher than the rates in developed countries.
