Connestee Deck Collapses, Injuring 5


A deck collapsed at 17 Adohi Court in the Connestee Falls community on Sunday afternoon, injuring five people.

“The deck collapsed with seven people on it, and we transported five with non-life threatening injuries,” said Connestee Falls Fire Rescue Chief Keith Owen.

Owen could not comment on the condition of the deck. Transylvania County building inspectors are scheduled to inspect the deck today. The wooden deck apparently pulled away from the side of the house, and those standing on it fell about 10 feet. Those injured were taken to Transylvania Regional Hospital.
