Balcony Collapses at Edmonton Apartment


Recommended Posts

An investigation is underway after a top-floor balcony of a three floor walk-up apartment collapsed in Edmonton's Old Strathcona neighbourhood Saturday night.

Seven people had crowded onto the wooden balcony at the Sprucewood Manor apartments at 106th Street and 79th Avenue when it broke away from the building.

A young woman fell to the ground, while four others landed on the balcony below.

That looks like a 10 foot door and the deck boards are (or were) laid on 6X8 (?) cantilevered joists that are ten feet apart. Looks like the joists on the left broke off at about halfway out from the wall.

Maybe the balconies were for decoration only, but someone forgot to tell the tenants.
