10 houses collapse because of construction work

Well done, french construction company :-)

In a chilling domino effect, the collapse of a house in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City Sunday caused nine others in a row to collapse as well, but no casualties have been reported so far.
The incident happed at around 10.15 p.m. when some workers at the construction site of Saigon M&C building on Ton Duc Thang Street, District 1, were working on its third underground floor, witnesses said.
The workers then found artesian waters coming out from a small hole and very soon the water made it into a very big hole despite their efforts to fix it.


I can't believe that no one was hurt. I just hope that the company who did this is really paying compensation, nit just a few bucks

Truly amazing no one was hurt but it seems like all the residents knew trouble was brewing for a long time. Slightly ironic that it took a French company to knock down the houses as they were all colonial-era.
