3 soldiers die after tank plunges into river
Three soldiers were killed when a tank slipped and plunged into a river during heavy rains following an annual firing drill in southern Taiwan. The CM11 armoured vehicle carrying five soldiers was returning to camp in southern Pingtung county about 10am yesterday after completing the firing test when it slipped from a bridge and fell upside down into the Wangsha river. The driver managed to escape but four others were trapped inside the vehicle. One of the soldiers was revived after emergency treatment.
