EVANSTON, Ill. -- A crowded porch that collapsed during a Memorial Day party and injured four people in Evanston may not have been built properly.
The third floor deck collapsed at a residence in the 1900 block of Darrow Avenue on Monday night. Around six people were on the porch at the time.
One of those injured had to get four stitches, and X-rays for their back.
The Evanston Building Inspector checked out the scene Tuesday morning, and says it appears the porch was not attached properly to the structure.
Some tenants claim they had complained before about the porch.
There has been no word yet from the landlord of the building, but WGN was told he did show up to the scene Monday night, and later at the hospital.
