HCM City — A 44-year-old woman died after being hit by a falling tree branch in a freak accident at the Dinh Tien Hoang-Vu Tung cross-roads, in Binh Thanh District on Tuesday.

Witnesses said Do Thi Tuyet Hanh, from the southern province of Dong Thap, was crossing the street when a dry 3m-long branch broke away from its tree and fell on her head from a height of about 10m.

The clothes retailer was immediately taken to hospital but died on the way. — VNS
