Several dozen people were injured in the collapse of a crowded deck at the popular Shuckers Bar & Grill tonight in North Bay Village (just outside Miami).

The incident occurred as crowded the deck to watched the Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs play their NBA Finals game.

The deck collapsed in the during the first half of the game. Many were thrown into Biscayne Bay about 10 feet below as the deck broke in half.

Some were rescued from the water by heroic bartenders and waiters at first, then by EMS crews.

WSVN in Miami was first on the scene. Which was no surprise, since the station was right next door and one of their directors was in the bar.
