Sadly, injuries and deaths from deck collapses are not uncommon. Just this past April, eight students attending Ohio’s Cedarville University were injured when a second-floor deck collapsed during a gathering at a home. None of the injuries were life-threatening, but the accident did result in broken and dislocated bones. Most interesting, perhaps, was the fact that the deck was built within the last 10 years, and not considered “old.”
