HÀ TĨNH — A branch of the Việt Nam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) in central Hà Tĩnh Province’s Lộc Hà District yesterday publicly apologised and offered compensation of VNĐ450 million (US$19,800) to a child whose leg was amputated after being crushed in a pole collapse.

On August 2, 2016, five-year old Nguyễn Đức Trần Sang had his leg amputated after being crushed by an electric pole that collapsed while being removed by workers hired by VNPT.

Previously, the branch only offered compensation of VNĐ30 million ($1,300) and kept silent. Local media followed the case and reported on it and authorities at the province and district level asked the company to assume proper responsibility for the accident. — VNS
