Man knocked out after roof collpase

A SECOND roof collapse left Australian Defence Force veteran Matthew Blunt unconscious on his floor recently – just two months after most of his ceiling fell into his home in July.

Wallan’s Mr Blunt was at home on Friday, September 21, when he began hearing loud noises.

He checked outside but could hear nothing. He then noticed his ceiling was sagging.
“I just looked up and thought ‘crap’,” he said.

“I could see the ceiling sagging and I pushed it up like a trampoline.

“Then, a little while later, down she came. Then on Saturday, I came out of my room and a little bit more of the roof came down onto me.

“It lifted me off the ground and I ended up unconscious.”

Mr Blunt is now regulated to just the bedroom with his dog Bella.

Most of the roof in the home is now collapsed with dust and debris throughout the house and on the front lawn.

Mr Blunt, who co-owns the home, purchased the house back in 2014.

Mr Blunt will compete at the Invictus Games later this month.
