TAY NINH — Eleven 12-year-old students and two teachers of Suoi Day Secondary School were injured after about 100 hydrogen balloons exploded yesterday afternoon in the southern Tay Ninh Province's Suoi Day Commune.
The victims received burn injuries on their faces and hands. The incident occurred after a ceremony to recognise the school's implementation of the national standards on education ended. The students had then asked the teachers to allow them to take the balloons.
Three of the injured students were discharged from the local health centre after being treated for minor burns, while eight students and two teachers were admitted to the Tay Ninh General Hospital.
The local police are investigating the case. — VNS
