Danger is everywhere even when you think you are keeping a watchful eye.
For 50-year-old Nguyễn Văn C in An Dương District, coastal city of Hải Phòng, living on a river meant he had to always be aware.
His life would have peacefully drifted on like a boat, if it hadn't been for a truck driven by 27-year-old Trịnh Văn N.
The driver lost control of the vehicle, smashed through a barricade and the truck landed on C's tiny boat, with him aboard.
The porr boatman was severely injured and died in a local hospital.
Wariness is not always enough, especially when danger lurks behind every vehicle on the road in Việt Nam. — VNS
