Four adults and a child suffered non-life-threatening injuries Friday when the second-floor balcony of a South Los Angeles fourplex collapsed.
A total of 10 patients were evaluated for injuries following the collapse, which was reported about 5:20 p.m. in the 4600 block of South Wall Street, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Three women, a man and a girl were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries described as moderate and non-life-threatening, according to Stewart, who said five other people declined ambulance transport.
