MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, Feb. 2, 2021 (Local News) -Pizza chefAlejandro Apkarianwas busy making dough at home when part of his roof fell in.

The cause was demolition work - a neighbouring house was being levelled to make way for a new train track in the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo. The track is being built by the Uruguayan government to serve a pulp mill being planned by Finnish forestry company UPM.

One of the walls under demolition fell onto Apkarian's house, injuring a visiting friend and his 12-year-old son. The demolition company repaired the roof, but Apkarian is still waiting for compensation for furniture that was destroyed in the accident.
