Almost two dozen people including 21 children were injured in an accident on Saturday when a wooden platform at a California gymnasium suddenly collapsed.

AT least 21 kids have been left injured after a stairwell collapsed at a San Diego gym.

Fire officials said 21 children and two adults were injured when a stairwell at an indoor obstacle course gym in California collapsed Saturday night. Authorities said the injuries ranged from mild to moderate, also including a spine and a head injury. A snapchat video obtained by FOX5 shows broken wooden planks and shattered glass covering the floor while parents move children to a safer area.


The business closed for the night and investigators were working inside to determine the cause of the collapse, he said. Many parents were likely using a Groupon that had been offered for the evening's event, he said. The facility also includes trampolines and bouncy houses.

Joe Saari, a parent of two children, who suffered minor bruises due to the collapse, said that when he and his wife dropped off their kids at the facility, there were 100 to 150 kids at the center. His son, however, who was attending a birthday party at the facility and was standing in line for pizza at the time, suffered minor injuries.

Zachary Smith told the Los Angeles Times that it was "a freak accident" that could have been avoided because the structure didn't appear to be able to hold such weight. Children huddled nearby in groups, some with parents.
