Second Floor Apartment Residents Have To Be Rescued After Complex Removes The Stairs (Video)
Posted by Steve on June 07 2017
Apartment living can be a challenge sometimes.  For instance, some apartments have shared washers and dryers.  That can be a bit of a nightmare.  Some places require hefty security deposits.  No fun.  But there are some things that apartment dwellers just shouldn't have to worry about...like having stairs to walk up and down.

For residents of the Maple Walk Apartments in Decatur, GA, they woke up Monday morning recently to find that the stairs that they use to access the second floor of their complex had been REMOVED.  Apparently, the stairs partially collapsed over Memorial Day Weekend and had to be completely replaced.  But instead of coming up with an actual solution for the residents, the management of the apartment complex simply hung up a memo saying that the stairs would not be available for a few days.  What?!  You can't just remove the only access that residents have to the second floor WHERE THEY LIVE!  What if there was an emergency?  A fire?

The police were called and eventually the fire department showed up with ladders to help residents down.  The fire marshal also showed up, but not surprisingly, no one from the apartment's management was there at the time.  He said that the apartment complex would probably be cited for violations.

The replacement of the stairs should be done today.
