BALCONIES COLLAPSE from TEN YEAR OLD condo building 2019/02/07 18:24  
There were no reported fatalities after a 'pancake sequence' sudden collapse of THREE BALCONIES at a merely TEN YEAR OLD, 4 storey residential CONDO BUILDING in Ottawa's central core.

Above the underground garage access, the rearside balconies suddenly collapsed ( one onto the next lower ) at approx 7:00 am. Fortunately none hit any vehicles in passage. CBC reports one resident's prior alleged alert to management & alleged structural investigations underway months earlier . . .

Maybe not unusual in other parts of the world . . .
