141 Yishun Ring Rd: Toilet Ceiling Collapses (Again)


An 80-year-old man injured his toe and suffered cuts on his left knee after a concrete slab fell from his toilet ceiling. He was using the washroom before going to bed when the incident happened. Fortunately, the slab landed inches away from him, but not before tearing a 10cm hole in his shirt. He has since received a tetanus jab as a precaution according to reports.


The man's daughter mentioned that their 32-year-old flat has not undergone upgrading under the Home Improvement Programme. It is later revealed HDB will be sharing the cost of repair under the Goodwill Repair Scheme.
