According to the reports, a boat with 18 people on board sunk in Raghagan Dam in the district when it went to deep water on a recreational trip, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Shortly after the accident, two rescue boats with seven personnel on board also sunk in the reservoir when they rushed to rescue the drowning tourists, the reports added.
