Roosevelt Falling Facade Eric Richardson / blogdowntown

Caution tape and a BID bicycle block the Flower Street sidewalk where a piece of what appeared to be terra cotta facade fell on Thursday evening.

A female pedestrian was injured this evening when when she was struck by a falling piece of terra cotta near the corner of 7th and Flower streets.

The chunk—described by one witness as the size of a large purse—appeared to be from the terra cotta facade of the Roosevelt Building. The sidewalk on Flower Street was crowded as office workers made their way to buses and the subway just before 6pm.

LAPD, BID and LAFD officers were soon on-scene to treat the injured woman and assess the situation.
