At least 20 children hurt in platform collapse in Barrio Logan

- Dozens of children were injured Saturday when a platform collapsed at an indoor entertainment complex in California.

There could be other children injured whose parents took them to hospitals, he said. Three or four may have suffered spinal injuries and were immediately transported to the hospital in "more serious" condition, SDFD spokesperson Steve Wright said.

One person reportedly had to be dug out from under the rubble.

Firefighters are now working to investigate how the platform collapsed, and whether it was built to sustain such a weight of people.

Joe Saari said that when he and his wife dropped off their two children for a few hours, there were 100 to 150 kids at the warehouse, which includes trampolines and bouncy houses.

Parents at the scene said about 50 children were expected to attend the event, but more than twice as many were present. Following the incident, one of their children called them up, and that is when they rushed back to the facility. His son, who was there for a birthday party, suffered minor scrapes after being on the platform when it fell.

He also explained how tough the evening was for parents who came in search of their children.

After the incident children were seen huddled in groups - some with their parents and guardians - outside the center, as emergency service vehicles lined the area. The training facility specializes in parkour training which is based on military obstacle courses.
