Photos of decorative facade cladding that had fallen off of a block at Pasir Ris have been going viral online.
The portion of decorative façade cladding looked to have fallen from a height of about ten storeys high and was made of metal and possibly wood.
A netizen, Ye Ruoshi who shared photos online said, “Initially we thought it’s very loud clusters of thunder… But wait! It doesn’t sound like thunder. Then our neighbours point to that direction and we look and saw this part of the wall covering fell right from the top and broke into pieces right outside the void deck”.
Updates on the incident were also shared by NTUC Assistant Secretary-General Zainal Sapari, who said on his own Facebook post, “
Was updated of an incident at BLK 270 PASIR RIS ST 21 where a large portion of decorative facade cladding of the block had fallen off.. The incident site has been cordoned off and there is no injury involved”.
He added, “Police and the Town Council are at site. HDB technical dept is onsite as well. Cause of damage is still under investigation.”
Netizens were mostly relieved that no injuries were sustained to anyone.
