The pensioner died after falling from the sixth floor of the house to the third when the floor of a public balcony in Khabarovsk collapsed. Now the prosecutor’s office is conducting a check, reports RIA News with reference to the regional office.
“The Prosecutor’s Office of the Central District of Khabarovsk is conducting an inspection in connection with the death of a 71-year-old man when the wooden floor of a public balcony on the sixth floor of an apartment building in Khabarovsk collapsed,” the report says. The representative of the prosecutor’s office added that the Russian fell from the balcony of the sixth floor to the balcony of the third floor.
During the inspection, the prosecutor’s office will assess the actions of officials of the organization that serves the residential building, as well as local government bodies. If grounds are found, then department employees will take response measures.
Some time ago, an announcement was placed on the window of the sixth floor that it was dangerous to be on the balcony, he said RIA News source in law enforcement.
Earlier in Izhevsk, they filmed a balcony that collapsed a meter away from a four-year-old child. The incident was caused by a squally wind.
