PORT DICKSON - Two guests of a hotel in the Malaysian resort town of Port Dickson were injured when the ceiling of their room and the roof of their hotel collapsed on Tuesday morning (Oct 10).

The incident happened when the family of three were sleeping in their room on the seventh floor of the Avillion Hotel at about 4am.

According to the New Straits Times, the two adults were awoken when the ceiling of their room suddenly collapsed around them after the ho tel roof gave way.

The two adults sustained minor injuries, while their son was unhurt in the incident.

Port Dickson Fire and Rescue Department station head Razif Mohd Haris said that eight personnel, a fire engine and a team from the Emergency Medical Response Service were dispatched to the hotel after an emergency call was made at 4.22am.

"The victims were sent to Hospital Port Dickson for treatment," he said.

"We are still investigating the cause of the incident. At the moment, we can't rule out bad weather as a contributing factor," the paper quoted him as saying.

Initial investigations found that the incident may have been caused by a water heater explosion, the NST reported, citing the fire department's director Norazam Khamis. "Only one room was involved in the incident, believed to be caused by a water heater exploding in the bathroom. So far, the building is still safe," he said.

The Avi llion Hotel Group said in a statement on Facebook that it "deeply regrets the incident".

Avillion's acting chief executive Amirul Azhar Baharom said: "Our guests' safety is our utmost priority, and the family of three who sustained minor injuries have received treatment as outpatients at Hospital Port Dickson. They are now back at the resort to rest, and the resort staff (are) at hand to provide them with full support".

The statement also said that the fire department had deemed the first three floors of the hotel block, which mainly consists of meeting rooms, were safe to be occupied.

However, the hotel said that its management has decided to temporarily shut down the entire block and move its guests to a different block as a precaution.
