Deck Collapses At Popular Miami-Area Sports Bar

Posted: Updated:

NORTH BAY VILLAGE, Fla. (AP) - The outdoor deck at a popular Miami-area sports bar partially collapsed during the NBA Finals, sending dozens of people into the shallow waters of Biscayne Bay.
    
The accident occurred around 9:45 p.m. Thursday as customers were watching the Miami Heat play the San Antonio Spurs.
    
Miami-Dade Fire Chief David Downey says 24 people were taken to area hospitals. A fire official says many had cuts and bruises, though one person suffered a fracture. Two people were in serious condition.
    
Authorities say about 100 people were on the deck of Shucker's Bar & Grill in North Bay Village, north of Miami Beach, when it gave way.
    
Sports bar customers and rescuers helped people from the water amid yelling, crying and a rush to find people.
