WATCH: Security footage of Indiana deck collapse


TORONTO – It was a terrifying scene only imaginable in a movie.

An Indiana family were gathered for their Christmas party at a subdivision clubhouse on December 22, 2013.

As the two dozen family members posed for a group photo, the deck they were standing on collapsed, sending them all crashing to the ground.

Seven members of the family were sent to hospital, many with broken bones.

The family involved in the accident released security footage today showing the deck collapsing from multiple angles.

They are suing the company that built the deck and want to warn people about the dangers improperly built decks can pose.

“We want the public to know what to look for so something like this doesn’t happen to them,” family member Jeremy Wilt told WAVE 3 News.

In September, 2013 a deck in Halifax collapsed, injuring at least 15 people.
