A wall surrounding a resort in Vietnam collapsed on Saturday, killing two construction workers, local authorities said on Sunday.

The resort is located in Cam Pha City under Quang Ninh Province, according to the local People’s Committee.

The two victims were identified as Pham Minh T., 38 and Trinh Tien T.,19, both hailing from Hanoi, who succumbed to serious injuries after being taken to the hospital.

Early reports said that the wall around the resort suddenly fell down as builders had dug trenches about 1.5-1.6 meters deep close to the footwall to install electricity and groundwater systems.

Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Joint Stock Company (BSR) is the operator of the resort.

Authorities had examined the accident scene and took samples for COVID-19 testing from the victims’ bodies before handing them over to their families.
