COLUMBIA — Two men were sent to the hospital in unknown conditions after a deck fell away from the house at 2001 Newton Drive.
A resident of apartment 5 and his neighbor were standing on the deck preparing to barbecue when it disconnected from the house, Columbia Police Sgt. Joe Bernhard said.
Officials don't yet know why the deck fell from the house. The city inspector will investigate possible causes and code violations, which might have contributed to the accident.
