Xong Ba Cha, principal of My Ly 2 Elementary School, Nguyen Dinh Dan, Cha’s deputy, and Lu Thi Khuyen, a teacher at the same school, were on their way home after work on a pickup truck on Friday afternoon.
The car suddenly plunged off a cliff in Yen Hoa Village, My Ly Commune, Ky Son District, at around 5:00 pm.
Relevant forces immediately reached the scene, where the pickup truck was seen being deformed in the middle of a rocky beach by a river, to rush the three teachers to the hospital right after the accident.
Dan and Khuyen were later pronounced dead while Cha was still in emergency treatment for severe injuries.
