Firm liable for killer glass

A LOCAL property management company must pay more than 800,000 yuan (US$130,480) to the family of a woman hit and killed by a piece of glass that fell from a high-rise building during Typhoon Haikui last year, the Baoshan District People's Court said yesterday.

The woman, surnamed Lu, in her 50s, was hit by the glass at around 7am on August 8. She was found dead at the scene.

The glass was ripped from the high-rise by the typhoon, the court heard. Lu's family sued the building's property management company.

The family said police found swaying panes of glass and other pieces of broken glasses in the high-rise.

The undisclosed company did not convince the court that Lu should also take partial responsibility for her death because she went out during a typhoon.
