Two teenagers and a kid drowned after slipping into a water gap while they were picking wild fruits in the north-central Vietnamese province of Ha Tinh on Monday, according to local authorities.

The three victims were among a group of six students in Cam Hung Commune, Cam Xuyen District, Ha Tinh, who went together to a local hill to pick rose myrtle fruits to sell on the morning of the same day.

As N.T.P., 16, V.H.T.N., 16, and H.V.H.,7, accidentally fell into the Ngang water gap, the three others returned to their village to call for help.

When local people arrived at the water gap, the three victims had already passed away.

According to a leader of Cam Hung Commune, the three deceased students had fallen into holes about five square meters wide and 1.6 meters deep in the water gap.

P. and N. was in 11th grade while H. just finished second grade.

N. and H. were siblings from a poverty-stricken family, the leader added.

The three students made use of their summer holiday to pick rose myrtle fruits to sell in order to cover their school fees.
