Man. My boy is in pain & needs some justice. Last night’s rains pulled down the heavy fence of a shopping complex & a pillar or so, crashed into his sister’s house & killed her two-year old. Who does he report to, Twitter? His heart is heavy & he wants justice. Damn.

Update: It wasn’t the rains. Apparently, the mall’s generators are by the fence & it was the large Mikano generator that broke the fence and fell into the apartment. Not an act of nature after all… That was what I gleaned from his initial call. I was a bit distressed as well. Apparently, the mall’s generators rest in the fence & it was the generator that broke the fence & fell into the apartment…

Just killed my morning. He’s already informed his lawyer & the police, but I have told him to just take it easy for now. The woman & her husband were both hurt as well & are in the hospital. Their only kid. Damn.

This is the generator that crushed the apartment. Apparently it’s a small/low income building their apartment was located in. Imagine this falling into the bedroom of the sleeping couple & their baby. Tragic.
