Three balconies above a café in calle Olms gave way yesterday morning causing minor injuries to one victim.
The old building, which was only renovated a few years ago, is located in an area very popular with shoppers and pedestrians. According to the Palma Fire Brigade, the wrought iron railings on one of the balconies gave way, bringing down the two adjacent balconies.
Eyewitnesses said that not only did it "sound like an explosion" but that a great deal of debris came crashing down; local business owners feared the worst.
Members of the fire brigade, local police and National Police were on the scene within minutes and cordoned off the area. The Emaya municipal services agency cleared away the debris while firefighters inspected the building, allowing the inhabitants to return.
