Dozens hurt in Miami deck collapse

What started as a night out at a Miami sports bar ended in chaos when an outside deck collapsed with about 100 people on it. The bar was packed with fans cheering on the Miami Heat against NBA rivals the San Antonio Spurs when the deck collapsed just before half time. At least 33 people were injured when the deck gave way, hurling some into the waters of Biscayne Bay. Two dozen were taken to hospital (SOUNDBITE)(English) FIRE CHIEF DAVE DOWNEY, MIAMI/DADE FIRE AND RESCUE, SAYING: "Right now we've transported 24 victims from the scene, two of them serious. We're continuing to do search operations in the area of the deck collapse and working with North Bay Village police because this will be turned over to them as part of a crime scene." Divers were drafted in after unconfirmed reports that one person was missing. The search was called off later when it was determined the report was unreliable.
