Several people have been injured after a deck collapsed at a southern Indiana subdivision clubhouse.

Maj. Jason Cochran of the New Chapel Fire Department said crews transported seven people to hospitals following the collapse Sunday afternoon in northern Floyd County. He says none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening. The injuries included head injuries, minor abrasions and back pain.

The (Louisville, Ky.) Courier-Journal reports more than two dozen people had gathered on the deck for a family photo when it collapsed.

The collapse occurred in the Wolf Lake subdivision northwest of Interstates 65 and I-265, about five miles north of Louisville.
