A glass door inside a toilet at a Serangoon condominium, inexplicably “exploded” and shattered on an elderly woman and a toddler, injuring them, according to Shin Min Daily News.
The incident happened at the Garden Residences in Serangoon.
35-year-old Li Yue spoke to SMDN about the incident, saying that her family had been living at the unit for 3 months and that the condominium was completed a year ago.
her 65-year-old mother was giving her 2-year-old granddaughter a bath at the time, with the latter facing the glass door.
The grandmother then turned her back for a moment before being interrupted by sounds of an explosion, as the glass door shattered on them.
The grandmother hugged her granddaughter to protect her from the shards but it was too late as both of them started bleeding from the cuts.
The toddler suffered cuts all over her body as she was facing the glass door, and doctors took 2 hours to remove the glass shard from the child.
The grandmother also suffered cuts to her arms.
The condominium were questioned by the family and their neighbours, but they maintained that their glass door had met the government’s specifications, and wouldn’t take responsibility for the matter.
They instead offered the family $2,000 gift certificate and offered to reinstall the glass door.
