The entire family was sitting in the hall. Me, my wife, two kids, Dad & Mom. One of us could easily have been hurt. My mom switched off the fan just in time on hearing a strange sound. On closer inspection we realized how close the fan blade was to have been ripped off. It was clinging on by a mere centimeter.
We bought this USHA fan less than a year ago. There were cheaper fans but we bought this because we wanted to play safe by buying a branded item. Clearly a mistake.
Here’s an irony. Just a few streets away, at my uncle’s home, two fans successfully celebrated their 50th year and they are still going strong.
