I don't know nothing about constructing something.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...-collapses-sends-11-people-hospital.html
What was keeping the deck up? I see one long piece of wood on the ground:
Is that the support for the deck? Only one piece?
They put 40 people on it. Let's say each person was 150-200 lbs. That's 6000-8000 lbs. There were also tables and chairs on the deck. More weight.
This things that are attached to the edge of the deck, I am sure they also add weight and burden to the deck.
It's like you make a table and instead of 4 legs, you give it one leg in the middle.
Then the edges of the deck, shouldn't they be nailed on both sides into the white siding things or have a brace underneath them?
Hope everyone injured recover.
