The body of Truong Van Dung of Phu Ninh District was found on November 8 near the Nuoc Vin River.
 
The landslide, which was triggered off in Bac Tra My District on November 5 by Typhoon Mirinae, also left one person badly injured.

Rescue workers had earlier discovered the bodies of three victims belonging to the province and eight others from Thanh Hoa Province, aged mostly between 15 and 29.

The body of Vo Minh Vuong, 15, of Phu Ninh has yet to be found.

Do Thanh Van, chairman of the Bac Tra My District People's Committee, said the rescue teams have had to search for the victims with hoes, shovels, and crowbars because bulldozers are unable to reach the mountainous spot.
