Family pays tribute to sisters killed in Vietnam waterfalls tragedy


The family of two sisters killed while climbing waterfalls in Vietnam have paid tribute to them, saying "two bright lights have gone out".

Beth Anderson, 24, and her sister Isobel Mackensie Squire, 19, died along with former Royal Navy sailor Christian Sloan, 25, at the Datanla waterfalls in Lam Dong province on Friday.

The women, who were from the Ecclesall area of Sheffield, were seven weeks into a backpacking tour of Asia when tragedy struck.

In a statement released via South Yorkshire Police, their family said: "Two bright lights have gone out.

"They shone brightly for 24 and 19 years for everyone who loved and adored them and everyone who came into contact with them.

"Sisters, Beth and Izzy were living a life of adventure and did so, right to the end."
