How To Know If Your Home’s Deck Is Safe

It’s supposed to be a place where people gather and relax. But eight people ended up in a hospital after a back yard deck collapsed in Winona, and one with serious injuries. It was around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday when a group of people were standing on the deck. Winona State Junior Melissa Hurley was in the apartment below. “I was in shock watching it because you don’t expect a deck with people, I mean, everyone’s having fun, it’s homecoming, everyone’s out here having a good time seeing each other,” Hurley said. “And then you look outside and people are falling to the ground on a deck.”
