THANE: Three members of a family, including two minor children, sustained injuries when the ceiling plaster of their flat collapsed in the early hours of Sunday morning in the Mithbunder road area of Kopri.

Following the alert, local firemen and members of the Regional Disaster Management Cell (RDMC) responded quickly to the scene, working to clear the debris and ensure the safety of the building’s residents. The building houses a total of 65 occupants.
The official informed that the building is 30-35 years old and consists of 20 flats, and is currently under the control of an administrator from the co-operative department. The building has been identified with structural issues, with plaster and column cracks present in at least ten flats.
Tadvi noted that the building had been classified as dangerous under the C-3 category, indicating the need for minor repairs, during a recent survey of dangerous buildings.
