Rains continue, toll keeps rising

One man was found dead and five others remain missing after three boats capsized above a dam in Chuncheon, Gangwon, where heavy rains throughout the week prompted authorities to open the floodgates.
 
*capsize: 뒤집다, 뒤집히다
*floodgate: 수문
 
일주일 내내 폭우가 내려 수문을 개방한 강원도 춘천 의암댐 상류에서 보트 세 척이 뒤집혀 한 명이 사망했고 다섯 명이 실종됐다.
 
 
 
The Gapyeong Police Department said they found the body of the 69-year-old repair worker among docks downstream from the Euiam Dam in Nami Island in Gyeonggi.
 
*repair worker: 수리공
*dock: 부두, 선창
*downstream: 하류로(에)
 
가평경찰서는 경기도 남이섬 의암댐 하류의 한 선창가에서 69세 작업자의 시신을 찾았다고 밝혔다.
 
 
 
The man had apparently drowned after his boat and another vessel were overturned by rapid water flows on the Bukhan River.  
 
*drown: 익사하다, 물에 빠져 죽다
*overturn: 뒤집다, 뒤집히다
 
그 작업자는 북한강의 급류에 타고 있던 보트가 뒤집혀서 물에 빠져 사망한 것으로 보인다.
 
 
 
The two boats were attempting to salvage a police boat that had capsized while working to repair a facility around 500 meters (0.3 miles) upstream from the dam.
 
*salvage: 구조하다, 인양하다
*upstream: 상류로(에)
 
의암댐에서 5백 미터 상류에 있는 시설을 수리하던 경찰 보트 한 척이 전복되자 보트 두 척이 구조하려고 접근했다.
 
 
 
The police boat, carrying two people, had apparently been tipped over by wires installed to keep large objects from flowing down towards the dam, according to the Gangwon Provincial Police Agency.
 
*tip over: 뒤집어 엎다
*install: 설치하다
 
강원경찰청에 따르면 두 명을 태운 경찰 보트는 댐으로 떠내려 오는 대형 물체들을 막으려고 설치한 철선에 걸려 뒤집어진 것으로 보인다.
 
 
 
Police said a total of eight people — police officers, ordinary citizens and Chuncheon city officials — were on the three boats when the accidents happened, and one person was rescued on the spot.  
 
*on the spot: 즉각, 현장에서
 
경찰에 따르면, 사고 발생 당시 보트 세 척에는 경찰관, 일반 시민, 춘천시 공무원 등 모두 8명이 타고 있었고, 한 명은 사고 직후 구조됐다.
