OCEAN ISLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Twenty-one people were hurt when a deck collapsed at a home on the west side of Ocean Isle Beach Tuesday night.

Brunswick County Emergency Services Director Anthony Marzano said 21 people had to go to the hospital, of those 13 went to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center in Myrtle Beach, seven to Brunswick Novant Medical Center and one to New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

Some of the injuries include lacerations and a spinal injury but they are not life-threatening. Marzano said about 25 people were on the deck when it fell from the second story of the home onto a concrete slab underneath.

Ocean Isle Beach Town Manager Daisy Ivey said the people are renting the house, and the homeowner has been notified. She adds that several departments responded to the collapse, including Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach Police.
