A dancer suffered serious injuries on her way to the Budapest Operetta on Monday when segments of a rooftop under construction and building frontage collapsed onto the pavement at the corner of Jókai Street and Aradi Street morning.
The dancer has been taken to hospital, the Operetta said. Pál Győrfi, the spokesman of the National Ambulance Service, told public TV that four injured received treatment. At the construction site, a 50m wall segment fell to the pavement from the top of a five-floor building. Debris fell onto pavement and several cars parked in Jókai Street.
