On June 1, Lu and his cousin Giang Seo Dung entered the cave to remove a water pump. Shortly after, heavy rains and landslides flooded the cave, trapping Lu inside while Dung escaped.

The provincial department of fire fighting, prevention and rescue mobilised a team to save him.

 

However, the small and deep cave have made it hard for the team to approach him.

Up to Thursday, no contact has yet been made with Lu.
