Ceiling collapse injures Warner Robins man | News
A man was briefly hospitalized after a ceiling collapsed in a Warner Robins Housing Authority home.
It happened around 1 p.m. Thursday at a home in the T.J. Calhoun Homes off Sunset Road.
A woman who lives there told us she called management at 10 a.m. to report a leak from the ceiling. She says management said they would be there to fix it but never showed.
"I went to open the back door to see whether my clothes on the line were dry. So when I locked the back door, the whole ceiling just came down on me" says Wayne Brundridge.
He was taken to the emergency room at the Houston Medical Center, and was released after about two hours.
Although Brundridge is in pain, he's glad the ceiling did not collapse on anyone else... especially his three grandkids who were home.
"I'm glad I didn't lose my life but it could've been my grandchildren in there. It would've been something different" says Brundridge.
Some neighbors say this is not the first time a ceiling has collapsed in the complex
"Like a month ago, my ceiling also caved in. So it had already happened to me" says neighbor Litisha Styles.
A property manager says the damage could have been caused by an air conditioning unit in the attic.
