ONLY luck ensured a freak incident at Brisbane Airport’s car park has claimed no lives.


A part of the domestic terminal’s elevated P2 car park collapsed about 4:30pm Thursday, sending a huge slab of concrete down on to an exit ramp at ground level.


Brisbane Airport Corporation confirmed no injuries or damage to property resulted from the incident.


A shocked woman, who had driven down the ramp moments before the concrete came crashing down, told The Courier-Mail two vehicles could easily have been hit.

Not the sort of thing you expect to see in a "developed" country FWIW.
 
Using the S26 Wi-Fi Smart Plug you can easily convert your existing appliances into smart devices to be controlled remotely with your phone.

Takes just minutes to setup!

This should not be happening in Australia. Not with the high cost for labour and materials.

Ah but its a country that tends to award contracts to the lowest tender.

Says the woman that works in a building that has weekly fire evacs due to faulty wiring and one of the elevators is out of order every single week.
