Bicycles Crushed as Building facade falls on Yonge Street sidewalk

Apr 16, 2010 @ 13:44

Luckily no one was hurt on Yonge St. near Gould as a building’s facade collapsed at noon hour today. The accident happened right around the corner from Ryerson University.

Building's facade at Yonge and Glould falls on Bikes!

Building's facade at Yonge and Gould falls on Bikes!

Is it just me or are there bicycles in every story, every picture you see of the city these days (it’s just me). Cycling is on the rise in Toronto and predictably, because it’s a campus area there are a lot of bikes tied up along every street in the area. According to the CBC Radio reporter on the scene several bicycles can be seen sticking out of the pile of rubble.

A moment for the bikes…

I hope the owners had insurance.

    I was supposed to have lunch at Salad King today 30 minutes after this happened. We had to go with the sub-par substitute of Spring Rolls instead.

    Yikes Joe!

    Six degrees of separation, sometimes it’s a bad thing – in this case, just barely, it’s a good thing!
