The bodies of two teen girls who went missing in the Kwae Noy river last Friday in the western province of Kanchanaburi, were discovered yesterday morning.

Friday, three teenage students from Ban Kao Withaya School in Kanchanaburi went for a swim in the Kwae Noy river. The girls were quickly overpowered by the strong current and washed downriver. An onlooker witnessed the incident and rushed into the river to help, but could save only one of them. The other two girls were carried away by the current before his eyes.

A team of divers, equipped with diving gear and flat-bottomed boats, searched for the two girls but were unsuccessful. The first body was found yesterday morning entangled in a fish basket near Wat Chorakhae Phuak by local villagers. The second body was discovered by a search team later that afternoon according to police reports.

After the first body was located Sunday morning, rescue divers found the body of the second girl about 500 metres away.
