On March 18, 2015, a 2-year-old girl was killed when an under-construction balcony collapsed at their neighbor’s house on Monday afternoon. Her 2 teenage aunts were also injured due to the balcony collapse. Officials from the fire department rushed to the scene to begin a rescue operation. They managed to pull out the 2 from under the debris and all 3 were rushed to the hospital. The 2 aunts were treated while the 2-year-old didn’t make it due to injuries. According to the police, this is because of negligence on the homeowner’s part and a case was filed against him. He has yet to be arrested, according to officials.
