Just two short weeks ago a Brooklyn Deck collapsed injuring more than a dozen people. The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday, June 5th during a party with approximately 50+ attendees.
The Brooklyn residence, where the collapse happened, is a historic mansion and city landmark dating back over a century.
Officials speculate that the cause of the collapse was rotted wood, however investigations are ongoing.
