Five people died and six others were injured after a wall collapsed Thursday at a Taiwanese factory under construction in central Vietnam's Binh Dinh Province.

At around 5 p.m., several people were building a Taiwan-invested seafood processing factory at the Nhon Hoa industrial complex when a 10 m high wall collapsed on them.

It was raining heavily at the time, making rescue efforts difficult.

Three people died on the spot. They are a 34-year-old woman and two men, 24 and 37.

Bui Van Cu, deputy chairman of An Nhon, said 10 people were buried in the wall's rubble. Those who were injured have been taken to the provincial general hospital, he said.

By 11 p.m., local officials confirmed that two other men, 39 and 56, died at the hospital.

The accident site has been cordoned off by the police while they carry out their investigation.

Nhon Hoa Industrial Complex of nearly 300 ha hosts more than 50 local and overseas businesses.
