Vietname boat capsize death toll at 15

The death toll from the sinking of a tourist boat in central Vietnam this weekend has risen to 15 after two more bodies were found, authorities said.

Vietnam’s National Committee for Search and Rescue said on Sunday that search operations will resume on Monday to find the bodies of two three-year-old children still missing.

The accident occurred on Saturday afternoon as the vessel carrying 39 people from the Cham Islands capsized about three kilometres from the shore near Hoi An town in Quang Nam province.

Rescue forces brought 35 people to shore on Saturday, but 13 of them were pronounced dead.

Initial examination found the boat was not overloaded at the time of the accident.
