Three teenagers are missing after they went swimming in a river in the western province Kanchanaburi and were dragged out by the strong current. The teenagers along with a seven year old child were swimming in the Kwai Noi River when they were swept out far from the shore. A woman jumped into the water and managed to save the seven year old child. Rescue workers are still searching the river to find 18 year old twins and a 14 year old.

Kanchanaburi rescue workers and villagers from Thong Pha Phum district mobilised yesterday to look for the three teenagers. Rescue workers in wetsuits have entered the water to search and a boat has been sent out but the teenagers are yet to be found.

Drowning remains the leading cause of death among children under 15 years old in Thailand.
