PHU THO (VNS) — Two people were buried along with an excavator when a stone pit collapsed on Wednesday in Thu Cuc Commune, Tan Son District, in the northern province of Phu Tho.
The two victims were identified as Ha Van Dien, 30, and Vi Tien Luan, 29.
The local authorities are searching for them. However, the rescue efforts are being hampered because the large amount of gravely soil at the site is posing a danger. The stone pit is managed by the Tran Phu Company Ltd.
The reasons for the collapse of the stone pit are being investigated. — VNS
