Thirteen Injured After S.C. Deck Collapses During Photo Op

A deck at an oceanfront inn on Pawleys Island, near tourist hotspot Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, collapsed while over twenty-five people attempted a selfie in front of a rainbow over the ocean. Over a dozen people have been injured.

The deck reportedly collapsed 12-15 feet, collapsing in on itself during the selfie attempt. ABC News has a video report on the incident, wherein a witness says, "It was pretty horrific. Wood and splinters and nails and a lot of blood and people screaming."

All thirteen people are being treated for non-life threatening injuries, while five others denied medical assistance.

The lesson: don't go on vacation. Or take selfies. Or stand on decks.
