On that fatal day, a ship carrying eucalyptus logs and 16 local people overturned on Long Dai River, a section running through the Truong Xuan Commune of Quang Binh Province. Six victims including three women drowned in the incident.
Luckily, the ten others aboard escaped death by managing to swim ashore.
The families of the victims expressed their heartfelt thanks to SGGP readers, who felt sympathy for their struggles and hardship and were ready to give them a helping hand.
