QUANG TRI — A construction worker died, while another was wounded when a crane truck fell apart without warning at 9am today at a hotel-repair site in this central province.

Huu Nghi Hotel on Tran Hung Dao St., Dong Ha District's Ward 1, had rented a crane truck from a local private company, Le Thanh DKT, to upgrade the restaurant area.

When the truck's crane collapsed, the construction materials it was carrying fell on two workers on the ground, a witness said. At the time, some 10 workers were at the site.

Doan Phat Thanh, 33, was killed immediately, and Le Quang Khanh, 28, was treated at the provincial general hospital.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.

The repair work, which started on August 10, is expected to be completed on November 11 by the Doan Luyen private construction company. — VNS
