New Jersey on Saturday resulted in multiple injuries

Multiple levels of decking attached to a building collapsed Saturday evening at the Jersey Shore, trapping people and injuring several, including children, officials and witnesses said.

No deaths were reported, but the condition of those remaining hospitalized remains unknown.

The collapse took place during the Annual Firefighters Convention in the beach resort town in New Jersey.

Cape May Regional Health System spokeswoman Susan Staeger said Sunday that 19 of the 21 patients were treated and released, including three children.

Atlanticare Regional Medical Centre in Atlantic City said that one additional person was brought there for treatment.

Over two dozen people have been taken to hospital in the aftermath of the incident.

Joann Debito, a local resident, said she was sitting on her deck when she heard the collapse.

It was unclear how many people were on or under the decks at the time, or how many were firefighters, but the authorities said those who were trapped were quickly removed.

The accident happened during the annual New Jersey State Firemen's Convention, which is held each Sept.in Wildwood. It was not clear how many people were under the decks at the time or if any of them were firefighters.

Photos have surfaced on social media showing rescues searching for potential victims under the pile of splinted wood and other rubble, to which the structure was reduced as result of the incident. "I saw two women running and screaming".

The second and third floor decks appeared to have sheared off the building on the 200 block of East Baker Avenue, collapsing on a first floor deck.

Wildwood Fire Chief Daniel Speigel said authorities would not make an official statement on Saturday, as the cleanup and investigation are still in process. They were treated for injuries, none of which were life-threatening, the post said.
