College: Monitoring students in Connecticut deck collapse

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Trinity College officials say most of the 28 students injured in a deck collapse at an off-campus house party have been treated at a hospital and released.

College spokeswoman Kathy Andrews said Sunday the school remains in contact with the students still in treatment and has been reaching out to the parents of all those injured to ensure they are up to date on their child’s circumstances.

Hartford police say about 30 people were injured when a pair of crowded decks collapsed during a party at the house Saturday night. They say none of the injuries were major.

Deputy Chief Brian Foley says the building, located about two-tenths of a mile from the Trinity campus, was owned, but not managed, by the college.

Andrews said the college health center, counselors and chaplains will be available to the students.
