Porch floor collapses, injuring over a dozen partygoers

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Police say a porch has collapsed at a Connecticut home, sending over a dozen people to the hospital.

As many as 20 people were on a second-floor balcony in Hartford Saturday night when the floor gave way.

Hartford police say 15 people were taken to Hartford Hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

Among the injured were infants and young children.

Witnesses told The Hartford Courant the gathering was a party celebrating the birth of two babies.

Personnel from the Fire Marshal's Office have deemed the structure to be habitable following an inspection. The cause of the porch collapse remains under investigation.
