The two injured are Do Quoc Hung, born on December 10, 1987, and Vuong Dac Khai, born on July 21, 1997. After the explosion, they were moved to the Hallym University’s Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital in Seoul to treat their scalds.

Meanwhile, two victims were also found dead following the incident. These were Chu Van Duong, born on May 30, 1987, and Tang Van Khanh, born on January 23, 1990, both from the Northern province of Lang Son.

Do Quoc Hung is receiving treatment at Hallym University’s Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital.

The four were all legal workers who had traveled to the RoK to work at the Foosung Precision Industry Company’s plant under an EPS contract.

Representatives from the embassy, labor management board, and the EPS office discussed measures to support the injured, as well as carried out procedures to bring the bodies of the deceased home.

Previously on November 10, right after hearing the explosion, the Department of Overseas Labor under the Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs, asked the labor management board in the RoK to provide a report on the incident and asked the Vietnamese embassy for guidance on working with the EPS office and competent authorities to help the laborers with their treatment.

Meanwhile, the board met with relevant sides to deal with procedures for the deceased workers.

The RoK’s Yonhap News Agency reported that the incident took place at around 9:45am (RoK time), sending out plumes of black smoke from the plant of the Foosung Precision Industry Co., which makes fluoropolymer lined tanks, pipes, and valves. The cause was likely due to a short-circuit during welding. The plant had only four workers, all of whom were Vietnamese nationals.
