9-29-13...MANH. STAIR LANDING COLLAPSE.
« on: September 30, 2013, 12:08:12 AM »
One of the witness's stated that the guy was jumping up & down on a marble stair landing...these have always been a danger to us especially when exposed to heat from a fire then rapidly cooled ...whenever possible avoid stepping in the center of these landings...try to step from one riser to the other avoiding the landing....in this instance the DOB allowed residents back in after repairs were made to the landing...the "repairs" are made w/wood....what about a subsequent Fire that gets out into the stairway ?....be alert at all times....... www.nydailynews.com/new-york/east-village-stairwell-collapse-traps-partiers-injures-1-article-1.1470833
