PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - More than 10 people have been hurt after the collapse of a deck on Pawleys Island.

Midway Fire Rescue Chief Doug Eggiman says a deck at the Sea View Inn fell in at around 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Eggiman says the porch was on the beach side of the property and was at least 10 feet off the ground. A dozen people were taken to hospitals for treatment.

Authorities have not said what caused the collapse. But officials have said that the rest of the building was determined to be stable.
