The Ministry of National Defense and authorities in Quang Nam Province, central Vietnam are coping with the aftermath of a military trainer aircraft crash on Tuesday, which left a local man injured and damaged one house and nearby gardens.

Affected residents will be compensated accordingly.

The Russian-made SU22 was piloted by Do Tien Duc, who managed to parachute to safety after the plane encountered an issue during training over Dien Ban Town.

The trainer aircraft caught fire after falling out of the sky.

Consequently, some 100 square meters of the house owned by Nguyen Thanh Chinh, a native of the town, got damaged, with its roof blown up and its wall collapsing.

Another local man, Nguyen Thanh Hung, was rushed to a local hospital for emergency treatment after his head was injured by the flying debris from the aircraft crash while he was working in his garden.

Some vegetable gardens in the neighborhood were destroyed as well.

Phan Thi Tien, Hung’s wife, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Wednesday that the health condition of her husband, the breadwinner in the family, has made a little headway and needs monitoring for the next few days in hospital.

Representatives of local authorities and military forces visited to offer support to Hung and the family of Chinh following the incident.

A military official told Tuoi Tre that the military is investigating the crash to find the cause and assess damages, ensuring proper compensation for affected individuals.

Local forces will try their best to repair the damaged house and facilities before Vietnam’s Lunar New Year holiday, due in February, while the injured victim will get his medical treatment fees covered by the local budget.

Owners of the vegetable gardens destroyed in the crash will get compensation, according to Nguyen Xuan Ha, vice-chairman of the Dien Ban administration.
