Authorities: 14 people go to hospital after deck collapse”

Authorities say 14 people were taken or drove themselves to a hospital after the second-story deck of a Montana lodge collapsed during a memorial event for a firefighter.

The incident happened at around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday at a home along Presbyterian Camp Road, along Flathead Lake, according to Lake County Sheriff Don Bell.

According to witness Leslie Dillon, around 50 people were gathered on the deck overlooking Flathead Lake following the service when the structure broke and fell.

On Saturday afternoon, emergency services from Polson, Kalispell, Evergreen, and several other departments responded to a call of a deck collapse at Glacier Camp in Lakeside off of Highway 93 S. Bell said initial reports indicated at least 20 had been injured, but declined to provide more specific numbers. He would not speculate as to what caused the collapse.
