Woman injured by falling ceiling
A WOMAN in her 60s was rushed to hospital yesterday after part of the ceiling collapsed at a railway station.
The woman was hit by debris on the concourse of Glasgow Queen Street station shortly after 11am.
Trauma teams and paramedics raced to the scene.
A witness said: “Clearly someone was injured because they put up screens while they were treating her.
“To think something like that can happen at a major station is frightening.”
It is thought the woman was hit by falling plasterboard.
The station is being expanded and upgraded as part of the £742million Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme to cater for growing passenger numbers.
The woman was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary with minor injuries.
