WATCH: Deck collapses at University of Missouri fraternity house on homecoming weekend

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Several people suffered minor injuries after a deck collapsed at a fraternity house on the University of Missouri – Columbia campus.

It happened during homecoming activities at the Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity house.

In a statement, the chapter said the small deck gave way and dropped a couple of feet.

A video posted on Twitter by user @totalfratmove shows many people dancing to loud music on the deck before it caves and they fall a few feet.

The chapter said in its statement that it had not been made aware of any hospitalizations as a result of the incident.

It also said it is cooperating with the city and university and is removing the deck.

That comes after the City of Columbia issued a complaint, calling the deck a public nuisance that must be repaired, replaced or demolished.

Read the city's letter to Pi Kappa Alpha below:


The property is privately owned by the fraternity.

Those who were hurt were treated at the house and refused further medical care, according to Pi Kappa Alpha’s statement.
