Nearby residents dug the soil up to pull the three workers out.
Duong had dead by then. Quyet and Huong were injured and rushed to hospital.
Initial investigations show that the owner of the house ordered the workers to take soil out of the ground as the house’s foundation was higher than the street’s surface.
