Đà Nẵng — Two workers were killed and two others wounded when a wall collapsed on a team demolishing an old building around 1:30pm in Trần Phú street on Wednesday.

The city’s administration officially announced that the two workers from Quảng Nam province died immediately at the construction site at 42 Trần Phú Street, a short way from the Hàn Swing Bridge.

The collapse also wounded two others workers, but they have recovered after quick treatment at the city’s general hospital.

The worker team, working for Chiến Dũng company in Đà Nẵng, dismantled the old building in a clearance contract of the on-going road-tunnel at west side of the Hàn Swing Bridge.

The city’s administration supported VNĐ5 million each for the families of the dead workers, and VNĐ2 million for each wounded worker.

The company also supported VNĐ50 million for each worker killed after the accident.

The police are investigating the case. It’s the worst labour accident in Đà Nẵng so far this year. — VNS
