Authorities say 20 children were injured when a stairwell collapsed at an indoor paintball course in San Diego Saturday night.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported police said the injuries were minor, but a woman had to be dug out from under the rubble at the center called total combat paintball.
The newspaper reported that one parent said the stairwell collapsed when dozens of children ran up and down to get pizza from a loft.
“It was really scary. Everybody was crying and bleeding. I fell. Luckily I landed on the cushions, like a pad, and luckily I didn't get hurt. I heard like a crack, and then all of a sudden it crashed down, and I heard people screaming when it was coming down, and then after that everybody was just crying,” said a visitor of the paintball course.
According to the fire department, many of the children were taken to area hospitals.
No serious injuries were reported.
