BLOOMSBURG -- A porch collapse in Columbia County sent five people to the hospital.

The Code Enforcement Officer in Bloomsburg says all of those people were standing on the porch of the double home when it collapsed.

According to authorities, the building is now condemned.

Officials added that one of those people has a broken back and another has broken ribs.

"They were all hanging out with me on the porch, it just started creaking, snap crackle, everyone on the floor in pain," said Frank Woolridge, tenant.

The six people who live in the home now have to stay somewhere else.
