May 3, 2009 - 3 Hospitalized in Chicago Landing Collapse

Floorboards on a Chicago apartment building landing gave way this weekend, injuring three people, officials said Sunday.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Kevin MacGregor said the victims, believed to be a man and two women, were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries to their legs and ankles Saturday night when the floorboards of a Lincoln Park neighborhood landing broke, the Chicago Tribune reported.

"The floorboards gave way, it wasn't a total collapse," MacGregor told the Tribune, saying the victims fell 6 feet from a small landing off the rear door of an apartment.

One victim was reported in serious-to-critical condition and was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Officials said the other victims were in fair condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
