Her husband tried to take her to hospital, but their motorbike could not cross a flooded section of National Highway 1A. In desperation, he asked a person with a boat to take his wife to the other side.
 
But the boat capsized just 20 meters from safety. Both Phuong and her unborn baby died.

"I killed you," her husband sobbed inconsolably, down on his knees in front of the raging floods that had snatched away his loved ones.
 
They are not the only victims of the tragedy that has befallen central Vietnam in the last two weeks. Dozens of others, including at least two hydropower plant workers and 13 members of a rescue team, lost their lives to landslides in Thua Thien-Hue.
