A two-story house under construction suddenly leaned over a neighboring dwelling in Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday morning.

The building, located in Cu Chi District, collapsed sideways due to a soft foundation and fell onto a neighboring residence.

No casualties or injuries were reported in the incident, authorities said, adding that relevant units are carrying out further investigation into the cause.

As it was heavily damaged, the building is being demolished. 

The site features many signs banning taking photos and visual recording.

As Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters were taking photos of the site, some individuals appeared and forced them to erase the images.
