Nine people were injured when a large chunk of concrete plaster ceiling caved in at Noakhali 250-bed General Hospital on Wednesday morning.

The incident took place at 6:20am in Unit 2 of No 4 Children Ward of the hospital, said Humayun Kabir, senior station officer of Maizdi Fire Service and Civil Defence.
