MIAMI - An outdoor deck at a Miami area sports bar partially collapsed late on Thursday, spilling dozens of people into Biscayne Bay and injuring 24, two of them seriously, authorities said.

About 100 people were on the deck behind Shuckers Bar and Grill when it collapsed about 9:45 p.m., said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Lieutenant Arnold Piedrahita.

"Fortunately only 33 people were injured, 24 of those people were transported to local hospitals and only two were in serious condition," Piedrahita said.

The injured were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. Details on their condition were not available.

Rescue divers started to search for a patron thought to be missing after the deck slumped into the water, but called it off after determining the report was not reliable, Piedrahita said.
