Missing Brit found dead in Australian creek

Missing Brit Aslan King found dead in #Australian creek after vanishing into bushland.

The 25-year-old was camping with his friends in Princetown, Victoria, when he vanished.

Mr King suffered a seizure and ran into a bushland at around 2am on Saturday local time (3pm on Friday GMT) after he banged his head while drunk.

His body was found around a kilometre away from where he was last seen.

The young man was from Brighton but was visiting Australia with his friends.

Victoria Police said: “Police have located the body of a man following the search for missing tourist Aslan King in the Princetown area.

“Officers are yet to formally identify the body; however, it is believed to be Aslan King who was last seen at a camping ground on Old Coach Road about 2am on 23 November.

“The body was located about 10.15am this morning in a creek just over a kilometre from the camping ground where Aslan was last seen.

“Investigators will prepare a report for the coroner.”

Police in Victoria used a helicopter, horses, motorcycles and sniffer dogs in the search.

A radius of 300 metres around the campsite was concentrated by police.

Authorities said the search was difficult because of the thick vegetation, rocky clifftops and deep coastal waters in the region.

Mr King is believed to have hit his head on the ground at the campsite.

He then got up quickly and rushed into the thick bushland.

The 25-year-old illustrator arrived in Australia two weeks ago.

He was camping with four of his friends when he vanished.

Heavy flooding imminent in Saigon following high tide

High tides on Wednesday and Thursday are likely to trigger heavy flooding in #Saigon’s low lying areas, experts warn.

They say water levels in the Saigon River are set to rise 1.55 – 1.6 meters on these two days, with the tide peaking at 4-6 a.m. and again at 5-7 p.m.

The Southern Hydro-meteorological Center has warned that riverside and low-lying areas in the city, including the flood-prone Thao Dien in District 2 and District 7, home to the city’s largest expat communities, will get flooded.

High tides in late September and early October reached peaks of 1.77 – 1.8 m, heavily flooding many areas in the city, and the experts are saying it can happen again.

The previous high tide peak was 1.72 m in 2017.

For several years now, it has been a common story for residents of HCMC, the country’s biggest city and economic hub, that they have to wade through flooded streets with their vehicles and physically pour water out of their houses each time it rains heavily or high tides occur.

A major part of the city can lie below sea level in 50 years, turning it into a swamp, Laurent Umans, First Secretary for Water and Climate Change at the Netherlands Embassy in Vietnam, has warned. – VNExpress
