Platform collapses at San Diego gym, injuring 21 children

21 Children 2 Adults Injured in Stairwell Collapse

Around 50 children and two adults, aged 72 and 46, had gathered for a birthday party at Vault PK in Barrio Logan, where the 10x30 ft wooden platform collapsed on Saturday night.

The children were on a platform designed as a play area at the time of the collapse, said San Diego Fire Department spokesperson Steve Wright.

Fire department spokesman Jose Ysea said numerous children were taken to hospitals. Three or four victims have suffered serious spinal injuries, although all of them are expected to survive.

A woman was also trapped beneath the rubble but was freed by rescue teams, KSWB reported. "The platform these kids were going up was real sketchy, you could tell it wasn't going to hold all that weight", Brizendine said.

Video from the scene showed parents arriving at the gym to be reunited with their kids.

Vault PK owner and founder Jessica Ho issued a statement about the accident to ABC News. The couple were heading back home to Chula Vista when one of their children called and said there had been an accident. However, none of them were injured.

About 150 youth were in the building at the time, firefighters said. I am just as devastated for all the children affected as any other parent.

Vault PK specializes in parkour, a sport that requires athletes to complete obstacle courses often by launching themselves from structure to structure.
