Four people from Quang Binh Province, north-central Vietnam drowned while fishing at local rivers in two separate incidents earlier this week.

The People’s Committee in Bo Trach District, Quang Binh Province confirmed on Saturday that rescuers had found the bodies of a married couple after they drowned in a local river.

The victims have been handed over to their family members for funeral.

The couple, 54-year-old Nguyen Van Quoc and 49-year-old Nguyen Thi Huong, went fishing along a river section near Thanh Ba Bridge on a boat on Friday.

Their boat then capsized, causing both of them to drown and go missing.

Their family members later reported the missing case to local authorities, before their bodies were found early on Saturday morning.

On Thursday, 26-year-old Ngo Van Hieu and his young brother – 23-year-old Ngo Van Hiep – went to Khe Su dike in Phong Nha Town, also in Bo Trach District, to catch fish.

The two ended up drowning, and their bodies were found later the same day.
