BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say five people are dead and eight others injured in a balcony collapse in Berkeley.

Officer Jennifer Coats of the Berkeley Police Department says many of the injured have critical, life-threatening wounds.

She says police received the call about the incident shortly before 1 a.m. PDT Tuesday.

Arriving officers found that the balcony on the fourth floor of an apartment building on Kittredge Street had collapsed.

Coats says officers are still investigating at the scene, and she doesn’t have any information on how it occurred or what the people were doing on the structure at the time.
