While travelling on board a ferry on the Huong (Perfume) River at 8 am this morning, a man spotted the corpse of a woman floating near the Phu Xuan Bridge in Hue City.

He asked the ferry to pull over at café Long Gio, 30 meters from the corpse, so that he could inform local residents.
After getting the information from the man, Chung Nguyen Anh Tuan, a guest at the café, came over to the scene and found the dead body lying face down in the river, with long hair on her back.
He subsequently reported the body to a traffic policeman on duty at the foot of the bridge.
The policeman then reported the case to the city police, who later arrived at the scene, dispersed the curious crowds, and pulled the corpse ashore.
The police are investigating the case.
