Nearly two-dozen people were hurt when a deck collapsed at a home in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

At least 20 people were hospitalized with injuries ranging from lacerations to a spinal injury.

One person had to be airlifted, but none of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening.

An emergency services official says about 25 people were on the deck of the home when it fell from the second story to a concrete slab below.

The people living at the house were renting.

Officials say they've notified the homeowner.
