Béziers school reopens after ceiling collapse

MidiLibre/Scoop, May 31

The Pellisson school in Béziers will reopen next Monday after the ceiling collapsed this Tuesday, injuring 13 school children. Most of the injuries were minor, but one student suffered a head trauma, and another had a broken arm. All of them were shocked and traumatised.

The school will be fully inspected before Monday to ensure the safety of the children. In addition, all Béziers schools built in the early twentieth century will be appraised.

“No doubt will be allowed,” said Robert Ménard, the mayor of Béziers. “We cannot afford the slightest mistake. This is also why in addition to the specialists from the town hall, we have also requested an independent expert who will carry out the inspection before we reopen on Monday.”
