“A small leak suddenly sent water pouring into the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue and 59th Street in Manhattan this morning,” Julia Marsh and Kevin Fasick report for The New York Post.
“‘I was down there at 5:45am because I had trouble backing up my computer and everyone started yelling,’ customer Errol Rappaport, 68, told The Post. ‘There was a leak then–boom–the whole thing opened up out of the ceiling. Then everyone started scrambling, moving tables…It didn’t look like there were any electrical issues otherwise they would have evacuated the store,'” Marsh and Fasick report. “The flood began around 8 a.m., Rappaport said, as a heavy rain was falling across the city.”
Marsh and Fasick report, “Apple employees quickly got to work removing the water, he added, noting that roughly 15 customers were in the store at the time. ‘It didn’t look like any electronics were damaged,’ he said… Shortly before 10 a.m., it looked like most of the water had been mopped up, but there was still a wet, 40-45-foot section of the store that was blocked off. The store remained open the whole time, though.”
