Two men were hit and killed by a train in the northern province of Hung Yen while they were taking a selfie on the track.
Transport officials in the province have confirmed the incident on Wednesday afternoon.
Locals said three men were walking together across the track, but two stopped for the photo shoot.
Some people shouted trying to alert them of the coming train but they did not seem to notice. Both were wearing earphones at the time.
The two men, 21 and 28, were workers at a local industrial zone. Their friend was not hurt in the incident.
