Investigation begins into Miami deck collapse that left 24 people injured

NORTH BAY VILLAGE, Fla. — Investigators began examining a twisted pile of concrete, metal, and wood on Friday to determine why a waterfront deck at a popular sports bar collapsed into shallow Biscayne Bay, injuring two dozen people gathered to cheer the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.

Authorities estimated about 100 people were on the deck at Shuckers Bar & Grill when a support on one end apparently gave way, causing the deck to buckle in the middle and drop about 8 feet into the bay.
