Several Kids, Including Baby, Among Those Involved in Wildwood Deck Collapse
A deck collapse in Wildwood Saturday night, that injured nearly two dozen people, included a baby and several children.
The accident happened approximately 6 p.m. Saturday night on East Baker Ave., at a multiple-unit complex.
Diane Hollenbeck, a neighbor of the home involved and a former trauma nurse, told 6abc.com that she witnessed a 4-month-old baby was being pulled from the wreckage.
By this morning, a spokesperson for Cape May Regional Health System reported that 19 of the 21 victims they received after the collapse, including three children, had been treated and released.
Officials in Wildwood reportedly called what happened a "pancake" collapse because of how the third and second-floor decks fell down on each other.
