DONG NAI (VNS) — The Dong Nai Province people's court ordered a mechanic company in Bien Hoa to compensate a worker who went into a coma after receiving an electrical shock.

Dong Hiep Phat Mechanic Co Ltd in Tan Bien Ward, must pay the worker, Vu Ngoc Dung, VND464 million (US$21,340). Dung has worked for the firm since 2012, earning VND2.5 million ($115) per month.

But he lost consciousness a month after the shock while at work, and would remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life, according to doctors at the southern Mental Health Hospital.

Previously, the company paid Dung VND71 million ($3,260) for initial treatment costs. — VNS
