Building's roof collapses in China's Xinzhou and narrowly misses woman

A roof of a residential building collapsed and narrowly missed a woman running past it in northern China's Xinzhou on August 17.

The terrifying video shows a building roof suddenly crashing to the ground, sending thick smoke into the air just seconds after a woman ran past.

Another clip shows the broken concrete blocks on the road with damaged vehicles.

Luckily no one was injured, but nine cars were damaged.

According to reports, cracks were found in the collapsed roof in March this year but the property management only warned residents and did not take any action.

It isn't the first time that the roof of a building collapsed in the residential community. The case is being investigated.
