Three women and a man, all aged between 30 and 60, received emergency treatment at the scene by ambulance crews, including a patient who suffered a laceration to their head. After treatment, all four patients were discharged at the scene and did not require further treatment at hospital."
Paramedics said that considering the size of the piece of ceiling that collapsed, the swimmers were lucky not to have more serious injuries.
