Umm, let me just tell you what went down, okay?

Falling stuff from the sky: no joke!

Ahh, so there’s this woman, Zheng Xiu Yin (73-year-old salesperson), who was just minding her own business in her 4th-floor flat at Sago Lane in Chinatown.

She went to water her plants on the balcony, and then heard a massive crash.

Guess what?

There was a huge metal pan that fell from above, like *poof* out of nowhere!

If she was still outside, she could have been seriously hurt, or worse!

Precautions taken, but still in danger

Now Zheng is so freaked out that she bought a 10-feet long pipe to water her plants from a distance.

You know, she be thinking like those video game characters using a super long-range weapon just to be safe.

And, she’s even considering wearing a helmet while watering the plants.

Can you imagine?

Not just one isolated case!

Apparently, this isn’t the only thing falling from the sky in that area.

Another resident, a Ms. Chen (39-year-old), revealed that someone threw a mop from up high and it landed on her balcony.

The handle even broke through her sunshade!

She was warned about falling rubbish when she moved in, and now she knows for real that this is a serious problem.

Be careful out there, okay?

These incidents are no laughing matter.

Like, there’s even a story of a 1.5-meter-long metal sheet piercing through a resident’s metal awning.

Imagine if that fell on someone’s head!

Scary, right?

Don’t know what’s going through people’s minds when they do stuff like this, but it’s just plain dangerous.
