NGHE AN (VNS)— Three people died yesterday after a crane they were on, hit a commune culture house's gate that fell on a vehicle in the central province of Nghe An's Yen Thanh District.
The accident took place after a local, Dinh Quang Nang, forgot to lower the crane, which later crashed on the gate. Witnesses recalled that the brick-and-cement gate, which weighed around 8 to 10 tonnes, fell on the crane, deforming it and killing Nang, his son, and an other man.
The local authority has supported the deceased's families by holding memorial services. The case is under investigation. — VNS
