A Russian tourist was found dead in Dak Nong Province, located in Vietnam’s Central Highlands region, on Monday after visiting a local waterfall on Saturday.
Authorities of Dak Sor Commune in the province’s Krong No District said the body of 35-year-old Raphael Agiliga Chukwunwike, a Nigerian-born Russian citizen, was discovered amid rocky caves at the Dray Sap-Gia Long waterfall ecotourism site around noon on Monday.
On Saturday, Chukwunwike visited the site along with T.T.C.H., a female resident from Ho Chi Minh City, to enjoy the beautiful landscape.
He used a camera drone to capture footage at the waterfall.
The Russian set the drone in the autopilot mode and walked to the waterfall himself.
H. saw that the drone’s signal disappeared on the mobile phone screen, so she went off to look for him.
She decided to report to local authorities after failing to find him.
According to initial assessments, Chukwunwike died after slipping and falling down the waterfall.
