MANILA – The ceiling of a restaurant at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport collapsed, leaving a male foreign passenger ‘slightly scratched’ reported by airport spokesperson David de Castro.

The collapsed ceiling at a restaurant at NAIA Terminal 3 was the latest in a series of incidents at a facility seen as among the worst in the world, David added.

The passenger’s injury was treated but insisted to leave on his flight for Japan, and De Castro declined to give further information.

De Castro said the ceiling collapsed because of the affixed overhead lights on a facade where the restaurant is located.

According to him, constructions inside these restaurants are allowed, but the airport authorities will still investigate if substandard materials were used.
