It took the rescue team five hours to locate the car at the bottom of the Red River. The car was found near the pier of Chuong Duong Dridge at 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Many boats helped with the salvage operation. The rescue team had to cut the car open in order to get the victims out. “There were two people in the car, one woman and one man with his hands still on the wheel. They have not been identified yet,” a Long Bien District police officer told VnExpress. The damaged guard rail has been repaired.
