A pond intended for watering coffee plants, where at least three children accidentally fell into and drowned on September 26, 2020, in Lam Dong Province.

The other children then ran off to call for help from adults. The three were retrieved from the pond, but could not be revived.

The pond was intended for watering coffee plants, said Pham Cong Huong, deputy chairman of Dai Lao Commune people's committee. Authorities are still trying to verify whether any other children also fell into the pond, so the pond is being drained, he added.

Child drowning is not uncommon in Vietnam, with the WHO estimating 11,000 such deaths a year.
