Three killed, northern Vietnam landslide, Phu Tho province, critical condition, rescue personnel

A bulldozer is used to find four workers being buried under the soil following a landslide in Phu Tho Province, September 1, 2020.

"The workers were digging a hole about 1-2 m deep when the soil above them collapsed. No one escaped in time," a witness said.

Dozens of firefighters and rescue personnel were dispatched to the scene, where soldiers used two bulldozers to dig the workers out.

By 11 a.m., all four were rushed to hospital where three later died. The surviving worker remains in critical condition, according to Tran Van Khai from the Phu Tho People's Committee.

"The incident occurred due to heavy rain in the last few days, weakening the soil and causing it to collapse under impact," he explained.
