Apparently the woman would have died immediately after the brutal blow, as the cement block fell from the sixth floor of a building.

After investigating, the authorities discovered that the building from which the cement block fell was built in 2002. The police are still investigating the incident.

They stated that the block was part of the wall decoration and that they were checking to see if the collateral was still held by the original developer or had already been passed on to the property manager.
