Sometimes in life, you just don’t know what will happen next.

You may get into an accident after winning one million dollars and end up spending half of it on medical bills.

Touchwood lah.

Or, on a smaller scale of misfortune, you may spend three hours getting ready for a date to receive a message saying that it’s cancelled.

I mean, life isn’t always smooth-sailing and predictable.

We just never know what may happen next.

And I think the passengers who were in Nanchang Changbei International Airport yesterday (March 4) are more than entitled to say that.

There was a video shared online that captured how a part of the roof literally collapsed.

Why it happened

According to Channel NewsAsia, the incident was most likely to be caused by strong winds in a torrential downpour.

Apparently, the wind speed yesterday in the area reached a record 37m/s!

However, the maximum wind speed recorded in Singapore is at about 40m/s which happened in 1984.

More details

The incident happened at the entrance of Terminal 2, just outside the arrival hall.

The main structure is still intact and flights were operating smoothly.

No injuries were reported, which was quite lucky, seeing as to how the most part of the roof collapsed within a few seconds.

 

My colleague said that it looks like some scene from a Transformers movie and I couldn’t agree more.

Also, I’m not some expert on this issue, but I feel like the airport should at least put flights on hold in this weather?

Or at least make sure there are no other parts that are destroyed!

I mean, the roof just collapsed!
