SON LA (VNS)— A suspension bridge crossing the Tac waterway in the northern province of Son La's Phu Yen District collapsed yesterday morning, causing at least 24 local residents to fall into the water along with their vehicles.
The victims were immediately taken to Phu Yen General Hospital.
Their bicycles and motorbikes were retrieved from the water nearly four hours after the incident.
No serious casualties were reported.
The incident has been attributed to too many people crossing the bridge, which was under repair, causing it to become overloaded. — VNS
