Don’t panic. According to the latest report, no one was killed during the collapse of Ayala Cebu Cinema 5’s ceiling, although it left a bitter taste in the mouths of our Australian friends.
Did I just say Australian? Yes. That’s why it was picked up by an Australian news site.
According to Amanda Hoh of The Sydney Morning Herald, IT company Dreamscape Network was holding a brand relaunch event held at the said cinema before the incident happened. Dreamscape is the parent holding company for an Australian internet domain name provider.
In their interview with the company’s CEO, Mark Evans, who was there during the incident:
“They [Ayala] were trying to sweep things under the carpet. They made no apology whatsoever, made no effort. It was total negligence, their emergency procedures were awful.”
