Three brothers narrowly escaped death after a tree uprooted and fell down on their dinner table right outside an apartment block in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday.
The siblings reportedly set up their table at around 8 p.m. under the big tree in front of the residential building Ngo Gia Tu in District 10.
Soon later the tree, with a one-meter diameter, collapsed. It was not raining or windy.
Nguyen Van Linh, 37, said he heard a crack and asked his brothers and others to run just in time.
The siblings' truck and motorbike were crushed by the tree.
The incident also pulled down several power lines, causing an hours-long blackout in the neighborhood.
