A packed deck of Shuckers Bar & Grill, a popular sports bar in Florida, collapsed into Biscayne Bay on Thursday, sending patrons into the water. About 100 people are believed to have been on the deck at the time of the collapse, Miami-Dade Fire Lt. Eugene Germain told reporters. Authorities are treating 24 victims, three of whom have "critical injuries," Germain said. Officials believe no one is missing. Video from CNN affiliate WSVN showed fire trucks and ambulances at the scene, which was illuminated by a spotlight from a helicopter.
