by May 19th, 2017

An elderly man is homeless after his home collapsed in Marley Hill Manchester yesterday (May 18).

A neighbour of the man told Irie Fm News that the persistent rainfall over the last five days led to the structure being weakened, resulting in two sides of the building collapsing.

Good Samaritans were able to secure the belongings of the man.

They are appealing to the authorities for assistance to effect repairs to the home in the interim.

The owner of the home was not hurt at the time of the collapse.
