Emergency teams have been working throughout the day to free workers who were trapped when a port crane collapsed late last night at Tan Thuan Port in Ho Chi Minh City.

The number of fatalities and injured people remains unknown.

The crane collapsed at 23.30 hrs last night while offloading cargo from a Vietnam Ocean Shipping Joint Stock Company. The crane fell down on the cargo and the workers near the vessel.
