Spalling concrete in the news


There was a write-up in The Straits Times about a 70-year-old woman almost getting hit by a slab of spalling concrete. The picture above from The Straits Times above shows it. Apparently:

A 70-year-old woman who got up in the middle of the night to visit the washroom got a rude shock when parts of the kitchen ceiling “about the size of a mahjong table” crashed to the floor in front of her

I had something similar too some time back and mine looks almost similar. Check it out below:

I know the feeling and I can count my lucky stars that there was a false ceiling that prevented me from being “crowned” by one of those falling concrete slabs. I had to tear my whole ceiling down and repair it. Check your ceilings folks, especially those that live in those old flats. You can get seriously hurt by this falling concrete
