Pretty scary stuff... glad nobody was seriously injured...

NEW ALBANY, Ind. —A family had a terrifying ordeal in New Albany on Sunday afternoon when the deck they were standing on high above the ground collapsed.

Twenty-six members of a family gathered on the deck of the clubhouse at Wolf Lake subdivision for a picture, but the deck suddenly collapsed just before 4 p.m. Sunday.

The New Chapel Fire Department responded to the scene within seven minutes.

Seven people were taken by ambulances to local hospitals, but none of the injuries was life-threatening.

Wasn't there a similar collapse near 8th & Walnut a couple of years ago?
