MIAMI (CNN/WSVN) — A packed deck at Shuckers Bar & Grill, a popular sports bar in Florida, collapsed into Biscayne Bay on Thursday night, sending dozens of customers into the water.
About 100 people are believed to have been on the deck at the time of the collapse, Miami-Dade Fire Lt. Eugene Germain told reporters.
Authorities treated 33 victims, sending 24 of them to the hospital; two were listed in serious condition.
Video from CNN affiliate WSVN showed fire trucks and ambulances at the scene, which was illuminated by a spotlight from a helicopter.
Rescue divers were also there.
The collapse is believed to have happened shortly before 10 p.m. ET.
Connected to a Best Western hotel, Shuckers Bar & Grill is in Miami’s North Bay Village.
On its website, it boasts outdoor dining on a dock over Biscayne Bay and 23 high-definition flat-screen TVs — many of them, no doubt, tuned to Thursday night’s NBA Finals showdown between the San Antonio Spurs and the hometown Miami Heat.
What had been the deck was largely unrecognizable after the collapse.
Leah Masters, a Shuckers hostess, told the affiliate the deck collapsed just as people stood to cheer a Heat basket.
