Mother and 28 year old daughter were trapped in their car in a basement street when it got flooded by heavy rainfall. The two had held hands but the mother remembers accidentally letting go when rescuers pulled her head above water to save her. The daughter was later discovered to have drowned. She is one of three deaths last night. It was her first visit home in a year after being hired at a famous medicine company in Seoul.
