I've never had one. But, I reckon I'd manage to avoid it. I wonder if this is just the token excuse now for deaths they don't want to look into.

I don't like heights so the likelihood of me being on one is slim. We say this every week, but why so many :/

A few weeks ago glass fell out of one the balconies on a tower near to this Laguna tower. This was from a high floor, but no one fell on that occasion but it scared a lot of people as it fell out during the day and left a lot of glass on the ground after shattering.

It appears that the balcony was not at fault in this case as it was still intact after the incident. I have friends that stay in this tower.

SO why not release the body and let the husband leave the UAE?
