Four children drowned when they were playing near a farm irrigation pond in Vietnam's Central Highlands region on Sunday afternoon.

The deceased victims were confirmed as Ka Sa Ha Phinh, aged 8; Ka Sa Ha Phat, aged 6; Ka Sa Ha Khang, aged 10; and Ha Thinh, aged 8, with Ha Phinh and Ha Phat being siblings, according to the police agency of Duc Trong District, Lam Dong Province.

On Sunday afternoon, the four went outside to play near the farm pond located behind the post office of Phu Hoi Commune.

A while later, one of them fell into the pond, prompting the remaining three to make rescue efforts but they failed, which resulted in all of them drowning.

As the incident took place in a deserted place, the kids were already deceased when they were discovered.

Local authorities handed their bodies over to their families.
