A total of 13 cars parked near a kindergarten in Hanoi were wrecked after 50 meters of wall from the premises collapsed on them on Thursday morning.

As witnessed by a Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporter, a 50-meter-long segment of the dilapidated wall surrounding Mai Dich Kindergarten in Mai Dich Ward, Cau Giay District fell upon many cars parked on the sidewalk of Mai Dich Street, destroying the front ends of these vehicles.

The collapse took place around 4:00 am on Thursday, according to a local resident. 

“I was sleeping when I heard a loud thud outside, followed by various car alarm noises,” the witness recalled.

No casualties were recorded as the school was still closed at the time.

D.V.T., the owner of one of the defaced cars, said the sidewalk where the incident took place is an authoritzed parking area.

“I have been parking here for half a year,” he said.

“At 10:00 am this morning, I was informed via a phone call that my car’s front end was damaged.”

“My car has not been pulled out of the debris so far.”

Police of Mai Dich Ward told Tuoi Tre that they have been informed about the incident and are working investigating it.
