You may have heard about the tragic accident of a residential building collapsing in Palma last Monday night, not far from the city centre. Seven people perished, including a father and his 15 year old daughter. The tragedy has affected the neighbourhood quite badly with the cause of the collapse as yet unknown. Dozens of neighbours had to be evacuated from adjoining buildings and are now afraid to return to their homes, because they do not trust the safety of their own buildings.
Bang opposite the accident site I discovered the location of a branch of the Pentecostal Church, a Christian sect, with a sign above its door reading ‘Dios es amor‘ (God is Love). Let’s hope that this will be of some comfort to the surviving relatives.
The photos were taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: October 27th, 2009. The time was 19:05:43 and 19:06:25, respectively.
