24 Injured in Deck Collapse

As the Miami Heat were playing in a tight game, a crowd was watching the televised game from the patio deck at Shucker's Bar & Grill on the waterfront in Miami. Suddenly the wooden structure collapsed, spilling about 100 patrons into Biscayne Bay, as the NBC station in Miami reports.

Police said 24 people were injured, two seriously.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
