Watch the video of a girl with her ripped swimsuit in the overcrowded water park.
As the management opened their gates, the people rushed into the water park. The area was overfilled with people who wanted to take advantage of the treat. The crowd multiplied in just a matter of minutes, leaving no room for privacy and exclusivity.
The management was forced to close their gates because swimming pools are already overloaded with the influx of bathers. Frustrated guests outside, driven by the stuffy, hot weather, tried to climb over the gates and fences of the water park.
Many people’s clothes were torn and several cases of sexual harassment of lone women were reported in the turmoil. Some were splashed with water repeatedly.
Others were intentionally pulled down to the extent of being drowned while being touched in their private parts.
Swimmers, especially girls were traumatized either because they were circled by men or they were stared maliciously. One teenager claimed that her swimsuit was ripped and she was fingered underwater.
The bunch of men around those girls became like a beast. They molested and harassed some girls.
Girls tried to shout and ask for help but no one responded. The crowd was to busy and noisy so no one noticed their cry for help.

The management of the water park didn't see this coming so they were not able to accommodate such number of guests properly. The managers had no plans to either calm down the crowd or get them in an orderly fashion, since they were smart enough to realize that the chaos would cost them nothing and in fact would get them some notoriety for free.
Nghiem Hong Hanh, vice general director of Hanoi Entertainment Services Company said Ho Tay received over 20,000 park-goers on that day alone.
A similar session held last year was also overwhelmed with visitors, but no one was found climbing over the fence, Hanh noted.
First and foremost, the management should have a security plan on an event like this one and they should have an easy access to the police in cases.
This recent shameful incident at Ho Tay Water Park might become a helpful reminder for people to do things right.
