[Watch] Balcony With 15 People Collapses!
A beach party almost turned fatal when a balcony of a seaside house collapsed to the rocks below.
A group of 15 people were enjoying themselves at Malibu, California, when the balcony suddenly gave way and broke off from the house.
The video, filmed from the CCTV camera of a neighbouring house, was sent to a local police station.
CBSLA journalist Mike Rogers shared the video on Twitter which went viral.

According to reports, some of those who were on the balcony were injured including two who had to be treated in a hospital. No one was killed in the incident, which reportedly took place on May 8.
“We heard a crack, and I literally saw all my best friends and my girlfriend fall 15 feet to the rocks. The deck just literally gave out. It could’ve been a lot worse, but it’s pretty awful,” CBSLA quoted an eyewitness as saying.
Following the mishap, many questioned why 15 people were on the balcony at the same time during COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
The owner of the property told a news channel that he had rented it to a group of only six people for the weekend. In reality, more than double the specified number turned up without informing the owner.
