Just before the 2023 Women’s U25 Wheelchair Basketball World Championship opened on Tuesday night at Indoor Stadium Huamark, a portion of the ceiling collapsed.

At 5 p.m., about 15 minutes before the event’s opening ceremony, which drew attendees from 10 different countries, an incident occurred at the Sports Authority of Thailand( SAT ) facility on Ramkhamhaeng Road.

According to SAT government Kongsak Yodmanee, some radio crew members were hurt at the scene. The facility was immediately evacuated, but sportsmen and other participants were also present in the passages.

The stadium’s roof, according to Mr. Kongsak, was nearly 60 years old but had recently undergone maintenance. However, a heavy storm just before the opening meeting proved to be too much for the building. & nbsp,

According to him, the SAT did relocate the sports competition to the Bangkok Youth Centre, which is managed by the Thai Metropolitan Administration and is located in the Din Daeng neighborhood.
