The Ho Chi Minh City Greenery Parks (HGPA) Company Limited has affirmed that the tree, whose branch tragically fell and caused the demise of a man in District 5 earlier this week, had been maintained in accordance with technical procedures. Representatives from HGPA, Ward 3 authorities, and D.’s family accompanied the deceased victim home to facilitate funeral arrangements afterward. Passersby gather at the scene where a tree branch fell on a man on Nguyen Trai Street in District 5, Ho Chi Minh City, January 18, 2024. Additionally, the presence of a high-rise building opposite the tree, affecting it with wind, is considered a contributing factor. HGPA plans to check and remove dry, drooping, heavy, and long branches on trees along Nguyen Trai Street, particularly for large and old trees, following the incident.
