Wooden Deck Collapse Injures 4 Women in Kansas City KS

According to paramedic and police reports- four women were injured early Sunday when the outside wooden deck they were on collapsed.

The incident occurred about 12:55 am in the 8200 block of Splitlog.

Paramedic reports to the University of Kansas Medical Center said the deck fell about 10 feet after it collapsed.

A "29-year-old female" had serious to critical injuries.

The other three- ages reported as "23- 24 and 25-year-olds- had lesser-serious injuries.

Folks- if you own or rent a property with a wooden outdoor deck- and it's been awhile since the support system had been closely examined- now is the time to do so.

I was the 29yr old female that suffered injuries on this deck. I urge anyone with a deck to check it and make sure it is secured to your home properly and that the wood isn't rotted.
