Tree branch crashes through NTU hostel roof

Broken roof tiles and other debris littered the room after the tree branch came crashing through the ceiling yesterday morning. The students' valuables, laptops and books all got wet after rain poured in through the hole in the roof. -- PHOTO: ST READER By Lin Wenjian Three students got an unexpected wake up call yesterday when a large branch came crashing through the ceiling of their dormitory. A section of roof was brought down and rain came pouring in after the bough broke off the tree in an early morning downpour. The girls, from China, were asleep in their sixth floor room in Nanyang Technological University's Hall 9 when the incident happened. Ms Xu Tongyao, 20, said: 'Suddenly we heard a loud sound and then things start falling from the ceiling. We quickly got up and ran out of the room.'
