A three-story kindergarten that was under construction in Hanoi collapsed in the early hours of Monday morning (September 25). No injuries were reported.
A guard at the construction site said 10 workers had been working there from 9 p.m., but they fled the site after spotting the structure listing at around 3 a.m., shortly before the concrete frame covering more than 500 square meters (5,400 square feet) caved in on itself.
Officials in Nam Tu Liem District said the construction had been licensed for a private kindergarten, and that an investigation had been launched to establish the cause of the incident.
The immediate response has been better an empty building site than a kindergarten full of students.
