HIGHBRIDGE, the Bronx (PIX11) — A woman fell from her bathroom into the basement of her Bronx building when the floor partially collapsed on Sunday morning, police said.
The 28-year-old woman suffered minor injuries in the fall at her Shakespeare Avenue building, police said. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.
New York City Department of Buildings inspectors determined a section of the bathroom floor in a first-floor apartment, directly in front of the shower and toilet, collapsed into the cellar below. The collapse happened because of a lack of proper maintenance.
The DOB issued a violation to the landlord. The department also ordered the landlord to contract an engineer and submit a structural stability report. A partial vacate order was issued for the impacted apartment and the area of the cellar below it.
Victim who fell was a 28-year-old woman, tenant of that apartment. She fell from the bathroom to the basement.
