How it happened? The shoulder strap hooked a handle and the camera fell on the corner of a metal drawer

That's my number two reason for disliking neck straps. I've never used one since I damaged a camera back in the 1970s in exactly the same way, catching it on a door handle.

My number one reason is that having fallen while out walking (several times) I've never liked the thought of the neck strap catching something during the fall and becoming a noose. Cameras can be repaired or replaced...
