Guelph Girl Dies After Wall Collapse

GUELPH OFFICIALS EXAMINING STRUCTURAL FAILURE

A 15 year old Guelph girl was pronounced dead yesterday in hospital after a wall in a public bathroom collapsed, crushing her chest and head.
Isabel Warren,15, was killed after sitting on a half section of wall in a public bath that was constructed only 3 or 4 years ago. The upper portion of the wall fell in and onto her.
City and fire officials are unsure for the cause of the collapse as the building was quite new. They continue to investigate.

    "City and fire officials are unsure for the cause of the collapse as the building was quite new."

    Oh really. This is a public building. It was built to designs approved by the city. It was constructed by a contractor hand picked by the city. All aspects of the project would have been approved by city building inspectors. And they're not sure what caused the collapse?

    If the people that designed, approved and built it are in charge of determining what caused this child's death I'm confident it will remain a mystery.

    Sitting on a half wall? What half wall? I've been in this bathroom and there is no "half wall."

    Speculations are she was leaning on the sink.

    Speculations are she may have been killed intentionally because she was an Olympic diving hopeful.
