Watch: “Luckily, no one was passing by” – iron material falls from five storeys height and hits two cars

No injuries were reported in an incident in Msida this morning and which could have had much more serious consequences.

Video footage posted on social media shows the damage caused by a crane that was lifting up some iron material on a construction site. For some reason, the load ended up falling to the ground from a height of some five storeys. The iron also hit two cars parked at the side of the road.

Habeb Shah, a resident in the same street, said it was lucky no one was passing at the time of the incident and appealed to the public to avoid passing through areas where work involving cranes is in progress.
