BAY HARBOR ISLES, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say two people suffered minor injuries after a deck collapsed at a waterfront apartment building in suburban Miami, dropping 20 people into the water.
    
Miami Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Arnold Piedrahita Jr. says the people had gathered for a wake on the ground-level, wooden deck at a Bay Harbor Isles apartment building.
    
Piedrahita says there were "too many people on the deck for the condition it was in" and it gave way.
    
Twenty people fell into the water below the deck. Piedrahita says all 20 got themselves out of the water before firefighters arrived. Two people were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
