Balcony collapse causes death of woman

A 65 year old woman who was sitting on her balcony in her house on the second floor of an apartment at Habibullah Road in T.Nagar, died as the balcony collapsed. She suffered severe head and leg injuries.

Her neighbours rushed her to the Royapettah Government Hospital where she was being treated. Inspite of the timely treatment given to the woman, she succumbed to her injuries and passed away. She was living in that house for the past 20 years. Her husband died ten years ago and her children were settled in different parts of the state. Police said that the balcony was very weak and that’s why it collapsed. Her body has been sent for post mortem.
