On April 19th this year, the ‘Ho Tay’ water park opened in Hanoi, Vietnam. As an introductory offer, they allowed free entry to the park from 8AM to 10AM. Little did they know that people would go crazy over the offer. By 9AM the place was packed and the management had to shut the gates. But more people still managed to get in by climbing the fence.
But that was the least of their problems.
Once the people were inside, some men, about 70-80 of them, in the lazy river area started misbehaving with the women wearing bikinis.
According to a report on Viral4Real.com , whenever these men saw girls, they would start “attacking” them by splashing water, pushing the girl’s heads down, and practically drowning them. Some women had their bikinis ripped off and were being molested by many men. Despite crying and screaming for help, the men would not stop. The aftermath of the chaos resulted to at least 20 girls being molested and sexually assaulted by scores of strangers.
Some victims even wrote about their horrible experiences on Facebook. Let us warn you, some of the details of sexual violence are pretty graphic in nature.
#1: We were holding onto the swim ring at the lazy river for about 3 minutes. Then we heard a commotion at the back, as we turned around we saw hundreds of boys crowded the whole river, screaming and going towards the three of us. I was in shock and choked on water; many arms pushed my head down. I felt my breast and my private area being grab and pull and scratch very painful, my butt was groped too. My bikini top was pull up to my neck and the bottom was pull till my knee. Even though i was choking, but i felt clearly someone was fingering me, my legs was spread apart. My head was still pressed down, I was out of breath and I thought I was going to drown. The water go up my nose to my brain, my throat. Those arms scratch and pull me up, my head hit the coping. Then there was people grab my hair, my arm to pull out of the swimming pool. I was coughing really hard so I didn’t even realize I was completely naked…
#2: I was swimming in the lazy river with my friends. Behind us, all the boys kept splashing water like crazy, we were so freak out that all of us decided to go out of the river. As we just got out, one of my friend, who were still near the river, were pulled down and dragged to the centre of the river and was being splashed water and her head was pressed down. We saw our friend being surrounded by bunches of guys, we kept crying and called out: please help my friend, someone please help my friend. Around us, people kept on using phone to record and laugh like they were at the circus.
#3: My sister went with her friends. When they came back, they were crying their eyes out. Their necks, shoulders and thighs are full of scratches and bruises.
#4: It was too crowded so my boyfriend and I just played near the swimming pool coping. Suddenly I saw on my boyfriend head some milky fluid, when I touched, it was slippery and a bit thick. I dragged my boyfriend out of the pool immediately and asked him to wash his hair and we went home right after. Those animals masturbated in the swimming pool.
And to top all of that, the Vice Managing Director of the park commented – “There was NO such thing as sexually assaulted at the water park, it’s just their bikini quality.” What did they expect women to wear at a water park – a fishscale armour?
While some of those men even uploaded photos and posted their “achievements” on Facebook, many were quick to take down their statuses and photos before the news went viral.
