Two foreign nationals died in separate incidents while they were exploring attractions with other foreign tourists in central Vietnam on Friday.

Bandian Luisito Eusebio, 55, was visiting the special national relic of Hien Luong Bridge - Ben Hai River in Quang Tri Province’s Vinh Linh District with a group of international holidaymakers at around 10:40 am when the fellow visitors noticed some abnormal signs from him.

The Filipino man’s face got pale and he soon lost consciousness, according to eyewitnesses. Just minutes later he was declared dead right on the grounds of the historical site.

Vinh Linh police immediately came to the scene for examination.

The body of the deceased Filipino was taken back home as per the regulations, while the cause of his death remains undisclosed.

The group of tourists that traveled with him had reportedly visited other destinations in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay in northern province of Quang Ninh, and Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park in the north-central province of Quang Binh before coming to Quang Tri.

Following his sudden death, the other holidaymakers continued their journey to Hue, the capital of the neighboring province of Thua Thien - Hue.

Later the same day, a foreign woman died while her companions were rushed to hospital for emergency treatment after their two motorbikes collided with a trailer tractor in the central-province of Quang Nam at around 2:30pm.

It was not immediately clear what the nationality of the group of foreign travelers is. The tourists were traveling on two motorbikes rent in Quang Nam.

The trailer tractor was controlled by Vietnamese man Ho Nguyen Hoai Linh, 49, hailing from the central city of Da Nang.

The truck was heading northward when it rear-ended the motorbikes, according to police.
