One person was killed while five others were hospitalized due to suspected alcohol poisoning in Vietnam’s Central Highlands.

The People’s Committee in Duc Trong District, Lam Dong Province confirmed on Wednesday that they were investigating the reason behind the incident.

Preliminary information showed that a group of eight people had lunch while working at a coffee plantation on November 25.

Six of them drank alcohol during the meal.

They all returned to work after the lunch break and were still in normal health later the same day.

Early on November 26, one of the men, 32-year-old Lieng Hot Ba Biet, began feeling tired and was having difficulty breathing.

His family took him to Duc Trong District Medical Center, but he eventually passed away.

On the afternoon of the same day, Ka Sa Ju Ly, 35, had the same symptoms and was admitted to Duc Trong District Medical Center. He was later transferred to Lam Dong General Hospital.

Ly is still in a coma and is being treated in the hospital’s intensive care department.

On November 28, Kra Jan Ha Thiep, 17, Kra Jan Ha Thuong, 19, Ka Sa Ha Thoang, 39, and Kra Jan Ha Uy, 16, were hospitalized with symptoms including stomachache, nausea, fatigue, and headache.

Competent authorities later contacted N.V.T., who sold more than a liter of alcohol to the victims.

T. said that the liquor was part of the five liters of alcohol his elder sister bought from a man named P.V.B. in Tan Thanh Commune.
