40 Children In Monsey On Deck As It Collapses
Shmarya Rosenberg • FailedMessiah.com
The rear second story deck of a private home on Lindeman Lane in Monsey, New York collapsed Tuesday afternoon, Yeshiva World reported.
About 40 children were on the deck at about 3:00pm when it suddenly tore away from the home and collapsed to the ground.
Two children reportedly suffered minor injuries and were transported to Nyack Hospital by the predominantly haredi private ambulance service Hatzolah.
While the cause of the deck collapse is reportedly being investigated, the photos below appear to show that the deck lacked proper supports and was incorrectly attached to the main home’s structure, which may mean it was built without a permit, although this is by no means yet clear.
