    Islamabad: At least four people were killed and 17 others disappeared on Wednesday after three boats sank at Raghagan Dam, local media reported.
    A boat carrying 18 people sank in the Bahaur district of Pakistan’s northwestern Hahbratj province when it went into deep water on a leisure trip, Xinhua said.
    To save them, two boats rushed to rescue the drowned tourists, but the seven-person rescue boats also sank in the dam.
    Another rescue team started working and rescuing four people and removed four bodies from the water tank.
    The bodies and four other survivors were taken to a hospital, Xinhua said.
    The rescue team told the media that they were looking for the missing, adding that there was almost no chance of their survival.
    Reports from local police said the first boat sank due to overload and rescue boats had to deal with the accident because staff were inexperienced and failed to inspect the boats.
