Balcony collapse shakes Limassol

Narrow escape as balconies collapse without injuries


In the early hours of the morning, a residential block on Nafpliou Street in Limassol was thrust into chaos as balconies on multiple floors of an apartment building gave way. Miraculously, and perhaps against the odds, there were no reported injuries in this heart-stopping incident.

According to 24 Sports' initial reports, the calamity unfolded when the balcony on the second floor suddenly collapsed, crashing onto the one directly below on the first floor. The structural impact caused both balconies to cascade down to the ground floor, creating a scene of unprecedented destruction.

The Limassol Municipality acted swiftly in response to the emergency, dispatching crews to the site for immediate cleanup efforts. The gravity of the situation was palpable, as onlookers and residents grappled with the aftermath of this unexpected event.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the paramount importance of maintaining structural integrity in buildings. Authorities and residents alike are now left contemplating the sheer fortune that there were no injuries amidst the wreckage.

As the cleanup unfolds, questions regarding the building's safety and maintenance will undoubtedly come to the forefront of community discussions. Limassol finds itself at the center of a critical dialogue on urban safety and infrastructure resilience.
