QCOSTARICA – A tiny wooden home under a bridge where route 32 passes over the Virilla River near the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium fell down the high, steep bank Friday, giving a potentially dangerous definition of “living on the edge.”

No fatalities occurred but three persons were sent to the hospital with minor injuries.

With unstable tropical soil, this is not an unheard of occurrence in this country, although usually it happens during the rainy season.

Usually, homes built under a bridge are shanties built there to avoid buying lots. The home appeared to be propped up on the bank on stilts.

“It affected only one family but we’re worried that other houses might be involved since the house that fell was supporting others,” fireman Josue Sandoval told La Nacion, “Now, as a preventive measure, we’re telling the other home inhabitants that they can’t stay on their property.”

Of the three residents of the destroyed home, one was an older person who suffered a nasty blow to the head, another was treated for an attack of nerves and a third for minor injuries, all of whom were taken to the hospital by the Crus Roja (Red Cross).
