A file photo shows a 4-5 meter waterfall in Binh Phuoc province. Two teenagers went missing after falling down a similar fall in the province on April 22.
Local police and divers are still searching for the two missing teenagers in Binh Phuoc Province.
Nguyen Ngoc Lan Anh and Phan Thi Bich Dao, a pair of sixth grade students at Tan Hung High school in the southern Binh Phuoc province's Hon Quan district, went to the Dam Son Be waterfall near their school to take pictures on April 22. Another classmate accompanied the two.
While their classmate took photos for the two girls, Dao suddenly slipped into the falls. Anh tried to pull Dao out of the water and plunged in after her.
The water around the falls is 3-4 meter deep and more than 5 meters in places, a local police officer said.
Earlier this month, a 21-year old man was reportedly killed after swimming near a waterfall in the highland province of Dak Lak.
