"Was on my way to work at Juhu signal a huge rock falls on the car 11 floors up. cant help but think what if anybody was crossing the road. Any suggestions as to what to be done with such irresponsibility of the mumbai metro?" she tweeted.

Minutes after the tweet was posted, her followers enquired about her well-being. Netizens also slammed the authority, questioning if the authorities have any preventive measures in place to avert such incidents. Twitter-user Ansul_73_ tweeted, "Hope you are safe!

Yes nets are provided in such construction zones,why there is no such arrangements is a question!"
