Three members of a family were found dead in a well after being electrocuted in Gia Lai Province in the Central Highlands region of Vietnam, police said on Sunday.

A 53-year-old man in Ia Pa District was repairing a water pump near a well at his house at 8:00 am on Sunday, when he was electrocuted and fell into the well.

His 26-year-old son-in-law and 28-year-old son took turns jumping into the well to rescue their father, but they also got shocked, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

The three were pulled out of the well by their neighbors.

However, they were dead before they could be hospitalized.
