It tolls for Travis Kuhn.
If there’s ever been a good excuse to not put Christmas decorations up in shopping malls, this is probably it. Travis Kuhn organises bar and cocktail events, and had just carried a set of equipment up an escalator at the V&A at around 7 am yesterday, when the giant bell came tumbling down just seconds later.
Kuhn took a photo of the bell – as one does after narrowly escaping certain death – and posted it to his Facebook page with the caption, ‘Hmmmmmm. Perhaps I’ll play the power ball tonight. Shew!!’
V&A Waterfront spokesperson, Carla White, told News24 that no one was injured in the incident, and they will conduct a ‘full inspection and assessment’ of all festive décor.
I wonder if they can do a review of their choice of Boney M Christmas music while they’re at it?
