NGHE AN (VNS) — Five workers in a steel recycling workshop in central Nghe An Province suffered serious burns yesterday, when a pan with boiling liquid steel overturned and fell on them.

The accident occurred at the workshop in Van Tien Commune, Nam Dan District.

Vice Chairman of the commune People's Committee, Nguyen Hong Hai, said a worker allegedly pressed the wrong control button, causing the pan to overturn and the boiling liquid to fall on the cold water below, spraying the people working around.

Three victims are in the district hospital while the two others were transferred to Ha Noi to treat more serious burns. — VNS
