Improvising

Unfortunately Vietnam has a terribly high rate of child drownings. I don't want to quote a figure but drowning is the second leading cause of injury death in Vietnam and the number one killer among children under 14 years old. Alot of the drownings occur in inland water ways.
Ros took these amazing pictures at a small village about 20km from Sapa in Vietnam's North.
The kids are using sealed drink bottles tied together with string to help themselves float and play amongst the water buffalo.
