Tiles at a coffee shop at Block 10, Telok Blangah Crescent suddenly cracked yesterday evening (Jan 13), causing diners to stop their meals halfway and flee.

Stomper Angela was at the scene and witnessed the incident, which occurred at about 8pm.

She told Stomp: "We were having dinner when we heard a pop sound and suddenly, the floor started to crack.

"Diners quickly rushed out and some left their dinner behind."

The Stomper also shared how she had initially gone to sit indoors at the coffee shop, before the tiles cracked, but changed her mind last minute because of her daughter.

"I had actually gone to sit there but my daughter requested to sit outside. I was saved by her decision," said Angela.

She added: "The coffee shop staff later placed table tops on the floor to cover the cracks.

"A reporter and photographer from Shin Min Daily News turned up after I alerted them.

"Later, there was also a television crew who came down to film and interview, but my daughter declined to be interviewed.

"It was such an eventful night until I had no mood to eat."

Angela also described the coffee shop owner to be "very annoyed" by the presence of the media and said: "The owner even told me off but I said I had every right to report this as I was a diner there."

Stomp has contacted the authorities for more details.
