HA NOI (VNS) — A scaffolding collapsed on Sunday, killing one person and injuring six at a construction site of My Son apartment buildings in Ha Noi's Thanh Xuan District.

The accident reportedly occurred at about 10.30am on Nguyen Huy Tuong Street, when the workers were finishing the 10th-floor stairs of the buildings.

All the injured workers were taken to Construction Hospital for emergency treatment.

Dr Tran Quang Sang of Construction Hospital said the injured workers were taken to the emergency department at 11am the same day. Lo Van Thom and Lo Van Tham, two of the seven workers, were seriously injured and, after 15 minutes of hospitalisation, were transferred to Hospital 103. However, Thom died of his injuries a few hours later.

Hoang Van Hai, 29, and Hoang Van Ly, 25, who live in Vinh Phuc Province's Tam Dao District, had suffered minor injuries and were discharged at 5.30pm on the same day.

An investigation into the accident is under way.

My Son Apartment building is a complex comprising two blocks -- with 24 floors and two basements -- that have a business centre, office and residential apartments. My Son Investment Import and Export Joint Stock Company, the project developer, is expected to complete the project in the first quarter of this year. — VNS
