DONG NAI (VNS) — A worker was killed when a boiler exploded in Phuoc Thai Commune in the southern province of Dong Nai.
Three workers were performing an electric welding task atop the 12-metre-high boiler on the premises of the Viet Nam Vedan Enterprise Corp, Ltd when the explosion occurred at 9.30am yesterday (July 23).
Eyewitnesses said the force of the blast threw a worker 20 metres up into the air before he fell to the ground. The 34-year-old died later of his injuries.
The two other workers were lucky to survive.
The case is under investigation. — VNS
