Vietnam - Cables got caught in Bus Vent

After staying for one night and one day in Vung Tau, it is time to say bye bye to Vung Tau. After lunch we made our way back to Ho Chi Minh City. The journey from Vung Tau to Ho Chi Minh took us about three hours. We are supposed to take a rest at a rest stop in the middle of our journey.

But something happen to our bus, as the bus was about to reverse into a side lane to let us alight at the rest stop. The bus vent got caught by some low lying cables. I thought we were going to be electrocuted. It was quite scary.

Some of the cables had exposed wires. (photo taken from bus)

Our tour guide lead us out of the bus to the rest stop and let the driver and his assistant handled the whole situation.

A short video showing how the assistant using a pole to lift the cable up. Did not manage to capture how they remove the cable, cause we only have thirty minutes in the rest stop so I had to hurry to join the rest in the rest stop and stop my video...lol.
