PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia: A chunk of ceiling measuring about 14 sq metres collapsed at the Putrajaya health clinic building during heavy rain yesterday.

A clinic official, who refused to be identified, said water which collected on the ceiling caused it to collapse at 5.30pm.

"Fortunately, there was no injury or casualty in the incident," he added.

The clinic, however, was closed for its after office hours services from 5pm to 9.30pm.

The clinic official said they were waiting for the investigation report from the Public Works Department to determine whether it was safe to use the building.

It will remain closed until further notice.

On Saturday, lightning was believed to have caused a fire to the roof at the Orthopaedic Ward 3C of the Putrajaya Hospital.

Three other wards at the hospital were also closed. -The Star/ANN
