Another section of the towering wall around the Jack’s property in Ratho Mill collapsed Sunday night, a decade after a similar event claimed one life.
Disaster responders have ordered that the road outside the property remain closed after the collapse, which came amidst continuous heavy rain over the past week.
The wall made headlines when, on Sept. 19, 2008, it collapsed, crushing 67-year-old Patricia Jack-Bowman, who was driving at the time.
That section of the retaining wall has since been rebuilt with technical guidance from the University of the West Indies.
A section of the original wall on another side of the property collapsed Sunday night.
No one was charged in connection with Bowman’s death although a coroner’s inquest ruled that she died of manslaughter, occasioned by the negligence of the contractors and engineers.
Her widower was advised to bring a civil suit against those involved.
