Finally, someone who knows what they're talking about

Thank you for finally adding some facts to counter the armchair engineers out there that are incorrectly blaming the victims. I was just about to state the case that you just did so well. This deck (at least 220 sq feet by viewing the picture) should have been designed and built to hold over 10,000 pounds and capable of carrying 2.5x that weight. The fact that it failed comes down to the way it was built and/or maintained. Time and time again, I see comments blaming overcrowding from those who have zero experience or facts to support this claim. Bless the victims and their familes. I hope they recover physically and mentally from this traumatic experience.
