A young man slipped and fell into a stream at a tourist area in Phu Yen Province, south-central Vietnam, prompting his two friends to jump into the stream to save him, but the man and one of the rescuers drowned eventually.

Local authorities have handed over the bodies of the two victims to their families for funeral rites, after examining the scene and the corpses, Phan Tran Van Huy, chairman of the province’s Song Cau Town administration, said on Sunday.

On Saturday afternoon, three men, all aged 20, were on a sightseeing tour at the Binh Nin dam in the town when one of them, H.V.T., slipped and fell into the stream under the dam while taking photos on the embankment.

The two others jumped into the water to attempt to rescue T., hailing from Gia Lai Province, but all the three could not get to the shore because of exhaustion amid the swift-flowing stream.

Some local residents nearby tried to rescue the three victims out of the stream, but only one of them, N.V.Ch., survived, while T. and another, N.H.C., a native of Binh Dinh Province, died later despite being given artificial respiration.

Located about nine kilometers from National Highway 1, the Binh Nin dam area is a tourist site in Xuan Binh Commune of Song Cau Town.

This area has many large rocks, under which a stream flows all year round, with some sections being quite deep, local authorities said.
