SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Three people were treated for serious injuries after a deck collapsed during a birthday party in San Francisco.

KGO reports that the collapse happened about 5:30 p.m. Sunday at a home in the city's Excelsior District.

People were outside taking pictures during the party when the railing gave way, dropping them roughly 20 feet to the concrete below.

Authorities say all three people sustained head injuries and one had a broken hip and arm.

A building inspector reported that the railing had rotted. The incident remains under investigation.
