23 children hurt in San Diego trampoline gym collapse

At least 21 kids were injured Saturday evening after a stairwell collapsed inside a recreation facility in the southwestern US city of San Diego.

The collapse happened just after 8 p.m. PT at Vault PK when a large group of kids climbed up on a platform and the whole structure collapsed, injuring those on the platform and underneath it, according to San Diego ABC affiliate KGTV.

"It could have been much worse", San Diego Fire-Rescue Deputy Chief Steve Wright said. Another parent said his two children suffered minor scrapes.

Missouri adds to Vols' misery, 50-17
Missouri's defense as a whole is ranked 13th this season - second-to-last - but their D-line is tied for sixth in the SEC. And this wasn't to a Missouri team that was atop the SEC East like in Butch Jones' first couple years at Tennessee.

Apart from that, two adults between the ages of 46 and 72 were also injured when the 20-by-30 foot wooden deck and stairwell collapsed. "One of them is good, he's right here the other is transporting, little head injury, he'll be fine", Guisti said. The extent of the woman's injuries is not known. Several firefighters and children can be seen in the trampoline area of the gym.

An hour after the incident, the street around the warehouse was lined with ambulances and fire trucks, some leaving with apparent victims inside and yet still more emergency vehicles arriving. Officials say there were about 50 children on the platform eating pizza when the structure collapsed. Many parents were probably using a Groupon that had been offered for the event.

About 150 children were in the building and the cause of the stairwell collapse was still unclear, authorities said. The couple were heading back home to Chula Vista when one of their children called and said there had been an accident.
