Early this morning at 3:20am, a huge piece of concrete slab fell from a bridge outside Orchard plaza, narrowly missing 2 women who were walking under it just a few minutes ago. Thankfully, no one was reported to be injured.
A witness who the incident, Mr. David, said “They were very lucky because their lives could have been lost. It was very sudden and I was astonished. I never expected it.”
The spot is a popular place for smokers and shop keepers to hang around and chat with each other and usually there will be around 7-8 people there at any one time.
Orchard road seems to be having a spade of bad luck recently with Christmas trees and decorations catching fire and now a slab of concrete falling from a bridge. Will you still visit Orchard road during this period?
