Roof falls down - level 3
Players and fans had a narrow escape at the Vietnam Grand Prix Badminton Open on Tuesday, after the roof of the sports centre, where the competition was being held, collapsed.
Luckily, the players who would have been competing under the collapsed area were alerted to the impending danger by spectators and left the arena in time to escape injury. According to reports, no one was injured.
Onlookers watched in shock as the ceiling collapsed bringing down ceiling panels, a steel frame, electrical wires and air conditioning vents. The organisers later decided to change the venue, and the Phan Dinh Phung Sports Complex was closed for repairs. The incident is now being investigated.
Difficult words: impending (be about to happen), vent (opening which allow air to pass out or into a building), venue (place where something happens).
