At least 30 people were injured Thursday after a portion of a two-story detached garage in a Houston-area residential neighborhood collapsed.
More than 100 people were inside the garage at the time of the collapse, which happened around 1:30 p.m. in Katy, the Houston Chronicle reported. Some of the people were on the second floor when the first-floor ceiling gave way, the paper said.
The collapse occurred at what the Chronicle said was a religious event.
No life-threatening injuries were immediately reported, and most of those hurt suffered cuts and bruises, authorities said. But at least one person suffered a head injury, and six of the injured included children.
Authorities said several people held up beams to allow rescue workers to reach a few people who were trapped underneath.
