Heavy Panels Pierce Lobby Ceiling at Minnesota La Quinta Hotel

Four concrete-like panels crashed through the lobby ceiling of La Quinta Inn & Suites in Bloomington, Minn. No one was hurt, though the falling panels broke water pipes, including part of the sprinkler system, which soaked the lobby. The 233-room property was evacuated out of concern that more panels could fall. The cause of the incident is still under investigation.
