Two out of the seven victims burned by a man in a jealous rage in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam died despite doctors’ efforts, a representative of Ho Chi Minh City-based Cho Ray Hospital, where the patients were treated, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.

The 46-year-old patient passed away on Saturday evening and the 15-year-old boy died on Sunday morning.

The two suffered severe burns on 90 percent of their bodies and respiratory failure.

At about 6:00 am on Saturday morning, a young man poured gasoline over his body and a group of people and set them on fire at a boarding house in Phuoc Binh Commune, Long Thanh District, Dong Nai Province due to romantic jealousy.

At 6:45 am, the fire was put out and the seven victims were rushed to medical centers in Phu My Town, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, a neighbor of Dong Nai, for first aid, and then to Ba Ria Hospital in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province for treatment.

Ba Ria Hospital later transferred three patients to Cho Ray Hospital, two to Children's Hospital 2, and two to Children's Hospital 1, all in Ho Chi Minh City.

A representative of Children's Hospital 2 said the hospital admitted two children, aged 13 and 15.

They sustained burns on 60 percent of their bodies, mainly on their heads, faces, and necks, and currently need endotracheal intubation.

Children's Hospital 1 is also providing medical treatment for two other children who also suffered severe burns. They are put on ventilators and in critical condition.

Meanwhile, Cho Ray Hospital received three patients in the jealousy case and two of them suffered burns on 90 percent of their bodies.
