A six-year-old boy died as a wardrobe fell onto him in a kindergarten in the southern province of Dong Thap.
The kindergarten, Huong Duong, where the accident happened, has been suspended for investigation, Colonel Nguyen Chi Cong, a police chief, said on Wednesday.
The victim is D.H.T.P., a six-year-old student at the preschool, located in Sa Dec, a city in the province.
The tragic incident occurred during a break at around 3:00 pm on Tuesday, when P. and his friends hung themselves onto the doors of the wooden closet where their clothes and school bags were stored, initial reports said.
The cabinet then tipped over onto P., according to the reports, which added that the boy was admitted to the emergency department of Sa Dec General Hospital and was then transferred to Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City.
But P. succumbed to injuries shortly after. Further investigation is underway.
In December 2014, a cabinet ended the life of a first grader at an elementary school in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City, in the same manner when the six-year-old kid stayed in the school’s sleeping space.
A kindergarten student was also killed by a collapsed concrete door of a big cabinet at a school in District 9 when visiting it in May 2014.
