Earlier today I got to witness Concrete falling off a building. Luckily I was on the other side of the street. But still, 10-15 metres away is closer than I'd like to be to such things.

I was pushing Leif in his stroller on the way home from daycare, saw a blur out of the corner of my eye and a loud bang. I heard someone yell "Someone call 911", so I did. My initial guess was a window mounted airconditioner, but I couldn't see an obvious space where one would be missing. The only interesting things I had to say to the 911 lady were the address, a rough description of the damage done to the glass, the fact that it was a thing not a person (lack of blood), and what people were yelling, since I couldn't see through the cars and trucks on the road.

According to the news article, the first 911 call was placed at 17h59. My cell phone log says 17h58. Perhaps I was the first one.
