NORTH BAY VILLAGE, Fla. — A packed outdoor deck behind a popular Miami-area sports bar partially collapsed during the NBA Finals on Thursday night, sending dozens of patrons into the shallow waters of Biscayne Bay.
Miami-Dade Fire Chief David Downey said 24 people were taken to area hospitals. Many had cuts and bruises, although one person suffered a fracture, a fire official said. Two people were in serious condition.
Authorities said about 100 people were on the deck of Shuckers Bar & Grill in North Bay Village, north of Miami Beach, when it gave way.
