A senior condo puzzler: Safety vs. privacy

September 17, 2007
From the opening day in the early 1970s, people loved living in the high-rise condo in Edina. In fact, they liked it so much that many never left.
     Today, half of the residents are senior citizens. Last spring, someone tried to flush an adult diaper down a toilet. The overflow of water caused so much damage to walls and ceilings in units below that residents had to move out for repairs.
