12 Killed in Porch Collapse

Post placeholder image

I’ve got to stop leaving my TV on at night. Time and time again, I keep waking up to horrible news like this. It’s sad to say, but I’m not really surprised by the accident which happened less than a mile from me. I myself have been on one too many of these overcrowded porches for a summer party. Heck, the dinner party I was at last night ended on the roof deck. Thankfully, those are alot more secure than these back porches which are usually poorly constructed. Oh I pray for the families of the dead. This is just too sad. No one should go to a party and die.
Update: 2 of the 13 killed in this freak accident were Michigan graduates. They are Kelly McKinnell (1999) & Kelly Pagel (2000). It’s all so very sad. I mourn and say a special prayer for their families.

    That’s awful. We’ve had a few parties where there have been tons of people on our porch and I’ve worried about a collapse. I guess it pays to be over cautious.
