4 Korean Tourists Dead in Vietnam Flood

4 Korean Tourists Dead in Vietnam Flood

Four South Korean tourists lost their lives when their jeep was swept away by rising floodwaters near Da Lat in Vietnam.

The incident occurred as they were traveling with a Vietnamese driver in the Cu Lan Village Tourist Area. Two of the tourists’ bodies were recovered 4 kilometers from where the jeep was swept away, while the other two were found later. The driver survived with minor injuries.
