A storage water heater ruptured in a condo apartment at Cote D’Azur in Marine Parade on Saturday, resulting in smashed glasses of the door and windows of the unit’s balcony.
SCDF said that they responded to a call for help at 70, Marine Parade Road at about 5:10 pm on Saturday. The incident was believed to have involved the rupture of the storage water heater in the fifth-floor unit. There were no fire, and reportedly no injuries reported.
However, the explosion was so strong that the glass doors and windows to the balcony of the master bedroom were shattered and sent fragments flying everywhere. It was also reported that a man had just stepped out of the toilet when the water heater ruptured, with the impact so strong it threw him onto the bed.
