The body of a 40-year-old man who was swept away by floodwaters on Thursday evening in Phu Yen Province, south-central Vietnam has been recovered, a local official confirmed on Saturday.

The deceased victim was identified as M.V.C., a native of Ea Ly Commune in the province’s Song Hinh District, said Hoang Dinh Nam, chairman of the Ea Ly Commune administration.

Earlier, when it was raining heavily at around 9:45 pm on Thursday, C. and his wife visited their farm, which is located in a field far away from home, to check if their livestock were alright.

When the couple crossed a spillway bridge spanning the Ho Nai spring in the commune, C. was swept away by floodwaters while his wife managed to survive the incident.

Authorities dispatched around 50 rescuers to the scene of the incident to search for the victim from Thursday night.

The rescuers recovered the body of the victim at around 7:00 am on Saturday.

His body was located some 200 meters downstream of the Ho Nai spring.

Heavy downpours have hit this south-central province over the past few days, leaving many roads and nearly 300 local households flooded.
