The police of Hamamatsu city, Japan’s Shizuoka prefecture, on August 17 recovered the body of Do Thi Viet Trinh, a Vietnamese woman, who was reported among the three going missing while swimming in the city’s Minami district, three days ago.

According to Hamamatsu police, the municipal rescue forces found 21-year-old Trinh’s body about 100 metres from the coast of Nakatajima town, Minami district.

Trinh and six other Vietnamese students and trainees were swept away by high waves while swimming in a forbidden sea area in the coastal city, the police said.
