VietNamNet Bridge – A family in Ca Mau province in southern Vietnam, has received the Vietnamese record as the family with the most members who can float on water.
In early April 2010, Mr. Hua Van Bach from Tan Thoi B village in Ta An Khuong Dong commune, Dam Doi district was taking a bath in a local river when a boat passed. The boat created a big wave that pushed Bach to the middle of the river. Bach was very surprised to discover that he didn’t sink but floated on the surface of the water.
On June 23, Bach’s son, Hua Tay Ha, 29, discovered that he had a similar ability to his father. The father and son performed their special skills to many locals. They jumped down to the river. The father lied on the water to play guitar while the son lied on the water to sing for nearly four hours.
Bach’s sixth younger brother, Hua Hoang Cuong, 47, has the same skill.
Many people went to Dam Doi district to witness the performance of these men.
Le Tran Truong An, general director of the Vietnam Record Book Center (Vietkings) said Vietkings expert verified the special skill of the three men and the center decided to present the Vietnamese record to this family.
