NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Eight people were injured when a balcony collapsed in northeast Florida, sending Fourth of July partygoers to the ground below.
Neptune Beach Police Chief David Sembach tells The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/169tyeo ) that up to 50 people were on the balcony when it collapsed Thursday afternoon.
Sembach says authorities took four people to a hospital and advised four others to go on their own. He says none of the injuries were life-threatening.
Police did not immediately release additional details.
Neighbor Henry Wood says some people had been standing beneath the second-story balcony. Wood says he saw people on the balcony "obviously having a good time and jumping around" when it collapsed.
