A balcony detached from 24-storey apartment building on Thursday, sending pieces of glass and concrete falling onto the road. When firefighters arrived to the Monkland Avenue building shortly after 7 p.m., they discovered the balcony dangling from the 20th floor. Monkland Avenue was closed between Royal and Hingston near Loyola campus until late Friday as workers used a 76-metre crane to bring the seven-metre concrete balcony down. There were no injuries. According to the Montreal fire department, a city building engineer will be investigating the cause, but there are no results yet.
