Ceiling Falls Off and Hits 6 Scooters in Kaohsiung|高雄市區騎樓天花板墜落 砸中6部機車


A ceiling outside a store in Kaohsiung suddenly collapsed and six scooters parking at the arcade were hit by falling debris. The Kaohsiung City Building Administration Office is now figuring out who is liable and how to ensure these ceilings are up to safety standards


The security camera monitoring a pedestrian path suddenly hit the ground when the ceiling collapsed. Six scooters parking in the area were hit by falling debris and almost injured nearby employees.

I was just leaving the store and sitting by the porch, the ceiling just suddenly fell down.

The accident took place outside a gift shop located on the Zhongzheng 3rd Road in Kaohsiung, and the ceiling above the pedestrian path was made with wooden materials. The lessee said that they reported to the property owner in the past after parts of the external wall tiles fell off, but they know that the ceiling decoration had quality issues as well.

I have reported issues in the past, and (the land lord) just fixed the parts of the wall tiles that peeled off. But he didn't do anything about the ceiling.

The lessee said she will check the maintenance records with the landlord. The Kaohsiung City Building Administration Office said that the ceiling of the arcade is not part of interior architecture so it is not under its jurisdiction while the police are only in charge of the traffic safety. The office said it will review the matter in hopes to come up with better ways to ensure ceilings are up to safety standards.



監視器對著騎樓拍,突然畫面一陣亂,監視器連同天花板裝潢,一起掉到地上,不只底下六部機車被砸中,隔壁店員凌晨剛下班,也差點被波及。

隔壁店員表示:「剛關好門,坐在那裡,突然天花板掉下來。」

事故地點位在高雄市中正三路一家禮品店,整片騎樓天花板都是木材裝潢,承租的店家表示,過去曾發生外牆壁磚掉落,並向房東反應修繕,但沒發現,連天花板都有問題。

事故店家表示:「有反映過,然後就把那個磚牆掉下來的部分,稍微處理一下,然後這邊(天花板)的話,就沒有整理了。」

店家不清楚天花板已使用幾年,還須向屋主釐清有無檢修紀錄。不過市府建管處表示,騎樓天花板不是室內建築,無法規列管,騎樓又只由警方比照道路,管理交通空間,需要重新檢討如何把關天花板公共安全。
