Porch collapses at Mifflin Street Block Party
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Two people were taken to the hospital after a porch collapsed on West Mifflin Street Saturday morning during the Mifflin Street Block Party.
The Madison Police Department said emergency crews were responding to a porch collapse at a home on West Mifflin Street at around 11:45 a.m. At least three people were confirmed injured at that time.
Authorities did not indicate how badly the individuals were injured; however, one person was seen being loaded into an ambulance wearing a neck brace.
At around 4:15 p.m., MPD confirmed that two people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries following the collapse.
It’s unclear what caused the porch to collapse or how many people may have been on it at the time. The porch was on the second story of the home and was a little less than half as wide as the house.
The investigation is ongoing at this time and Mifflin St is open.
