RoK offers condolence over Vung Ang scaffold collapse

The Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea, Yun Byung-se on March 27 offered condolences to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Binh Minh over the scaffold collapse at the Vung Ang economic zone in central Ha Tinh province.

The accident on March 25 killed 13 workers and injured 28 others at the Taiwanese-invested Formosa steel complex project.

A failure in the hydraulic brake system in the scaffold structure caused the 30m high structure to collapse, it was reported during a press conference in the locality on March 27.

Kim Hyung Sub, Deputy General Director of the project’s contractor Samsung C&T, has admitted his company was remiss in operating the scaffold at the site.
