Three people were seriously hurt but most of the other injuries
were scrapes and bruises caused when the floor of the apartment
above gave way and broke in Katy, west of Houston, they said.
Rescue crews set up a triage area on the front lawn of the house on
a cul-de-sac where numerous emergency vehicles were ferrying victims
to local hospitals.
"The floor gave way," Houston Fire Department Senior Captain Ruy
Lozano told the Houston Chronicle. "It looked like it bowed."
