Mdm Zhang came home from work one day and had difficulty opening the door to her restroom. After her husband's intervention, they got it to move, only to realise the ceiling of their master bedroom toilet had collapsed. The couple had noticed hairline cracks appearing a few years ago in their 32-year-old flat, but didn't thought much about it.
The metal bars that were part of the building structure were made visible as a result, but government officials assured that the incident wouldn't impact the building's structural integrity. Mdm Zhang's neighbor who lived one floor above has claimed that a similar incident happened in her home about six months ago.
