20 Injured in Deck Collapse

Twenty people were injured and fifteen were hospitalized when a deck collapsed in Hartford, CT this weekend.

The accident occurred during a family celebration, and it is being reported that the victims suffered a variety of injuries which are not considered life-threatening. According to fire officials, the second-floor porch collapsed, plunging the party-goers twenty feet onto the ground level.

An eyewitness account was provided by local resident Carlos DeJesus, “I see the, the porch it was completely destroyed. Everything came down. When I’m heading out the door I see an old woman on the floor. I see kids here a seizure over here so it’s like what’s going on.”
