Police in the southern province of Binh Duong recovered from a river Saturday the bodies of a woman and three children who had drowned in a boat accident a day earlier.
At around 9:30 a.m. on January 27, Tran Vu Ngoc Dung, 25, took her seven-year-old son Doan Hieu An and nieces Nguyen Thi Kim Hue, 10, and Nguyen Thi Ngoc Han, 7, to her parents' home in Dau Tieng District.
There, she took them to a river near the house and in a boat belonging to her family.
But in the middle of the river, swift-flowing currents capsized the boat.
The four fell into the water and drowned.
Local residents tried to rescue them but did not succeed.
