CA MAU (VNS) — One of the children injured in the carnival train derailment last Friday, at the Southern Ca Mau Province's Culture House, has been shifted to HCM City's Cho Ray Hospital.

Doctors said the boy suffered broken bones and damage to the lungs in the accident. The other injured person was reportedly having constant pain on one side of her body and also constant headache.

The director of Dang Khoa Production JSC, which manufactured the carnival train, said his company had assembled more than 40 trains across the country that had passed strict quality tests.

He said a technical problem that had not been properly fixed could be the cause of the accident.

Huynh Chi Dung, director of the culture house, said other attractions were ordered to thoroughly check their machines and equipment, and that the house's board of directors has launched an investigation into the accident. — VNS
