This matter actually strikes closer to home than you might think, particularily if you live in one of Dubai's 'iconic' housing developments.

A toddler belonging to one of our colleagues was playing in the bath one evening when the water heater fell out of the ceiling into the tub. Psychological trauma only occurred, thank God, but just think about it.....

In another case a wall-mounted mirror fell out, again across the children's play area, luckily while the kids were in the kitchen having lunch.

You might want to wander around your house and give the odd fixture a tug. I did in my place and a lot of the mountings look like they were fitted by a three year old - no, more accurately, a blind, drunk, three-year old with a malicious temperament.
