MANILA, Jan. 8 -– Two persons were injured when a portion of the ceiling on the fifth floor level of a shopping mall in Barangay Bago Bantay, Quezon City accidentally fell on them Friday afternoon.

Chief Supt. Elmo San Diego, Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director, said the incident happened at past 2 p.m. He withheld the identities of the victims who were taken to the nearby Quezon City General Hospital (QCGH).

San Diego said initial investigation showed the accident happened at the atrium area of the SM City’s The Block at the corner of Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) and North Avenue.

The QCPD chief said they are still finding out how the sun roof or ceiling on the fifth floor level gave way which stunned shoppers passing through the activity center.

Mall personnel immediately cleared the area of debris and blood stains on the second floor level. They also cordoned off the spot where the incident happened.

Mall security personnel refused to comment on the accident. (PNA) LAP/scs/JCA
