Authorities in Yen Khanh District announced on Tuesday evening that three children aged three and four had been found dead at a pond near the house of their grandmother where they were staying.

"The children, two four-year-old twin boys and a three-year-old boy were visiting their grandmother that day," the authorities cited the family's report. "As they were playing together at 4.45 pm in the yard, the grandmother did her work inside the house. She then came out to call them at 6.30 pm; she could not find them."

The grandmother called her son-in-law to help her search for the children. When he saw their ball floating on a nearby pond, he jumped into the pond and found the three boys drowned already.

Local authorities visited the family to express their condolences and provide financial support of VND24 million.
