HCM CITY (VNS) — At least six workers were injured when a scaffolding collapsed this morning at the construction site of the Mapletree Business Centre on Nguyen Van Linh Road in HCM City.

The incident occurred at 8am, when some workers were working on the ground floor of the building. The scaffolding fell from above with a thud. In the resulting confusion, a dozen workers tried to flee the scene.

The injured workers were taken to a hospital.

To facilitate rescue work, one lane of Nguyen Van Linh road was closed this morning, causing a heavy traffic jam.

Several hours after the accident, all access points to the construction site, in Tan Phong Ward, District 7, were closed.

Construction of the 17-storey office building began last May. — VNS
