9 People Injured as a Balcony Plummeted 15 Feet to Rocky Shore below a Beachfront Home in Malibu

The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the danger alert at a beachfront house in Malibu, where the balcony of the leisure site came crashing down.

Nine people were left with injuries after getting caught up in the debris of a Malibu beachfront house when parts of it collapsed. According to reports, the balcony of the beach house was the part that crashed.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department received a distress call at 5 pm from the 20500 block of W. Pacific Coast Highway, where nine people were caught up in the rubble.

Witnesses revealed that many gathered for a birthday party at the beachfront house with people on the balcony, but the occasion took an unexpected turn with the collapse. 

Among the nine people injured, four were taken to the hospital, and reports showed no fatality. According to experts, the credibility of the building and the weight of the number of people on deck were likely factors to the collapse. 

Captain Ron Aralson from the fire department shared that the situation was dangerous, but the injured people were fortunate that the jagged rocks did not do much damage.

The New Jersey authorities recorded building collapse issues at a seven-unit condo building in Wildwood.

In another disaster report, early in March, the Tennessee authorities received reports that the deck of a restaurant in Soddy-Daisy collapsed with up to 40 people caught up in the building disaster.

The Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department and Soddy-Daisy Fire Department responded to the distress call. Further reports showed that 11 people were injured, with two people in critical conditions at the time.  

The Soddy-Daisy response team brought in five ambulances to pick up the injured citizens, while the Hamilton County Building Codes were notified for investigations.

The New Jersey authorities recorded building collapse issues at a seven-unit condo building in Wildwood. According to the news, 21 people were injured, including children. 

During a yearly firefighters convention, the collapse had occurred, and reports showed that they could have been trapped in the debris. The Wildwood Fire Department worked alongside engineers and contractors to secure the remaining parts of the building.
