By Staff

An Emirati was injured when his house ceiling collapsed on him while asleep but all other members of the family emerged unscathed, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

The 25-year-old man was sleeping in the sitting room in Shaabiyat Rashid in Ras Al-khaimah when he heard his sister screaming for him to get out after the ceiling began to crack, Emarat Alyoum Arabic language daily said.

“I woke up but the ceiling already started to fall down..I covered my face with my hands to protect it…,” the man said.

The paper said the man suffered from shoulder injuries while his 64-year-old father and the other10 family members were safe.
