Dozens hurt in deck collapse at Montana lodge during funeral

A 10-foot-high section of the deck buckled after a memorial service held in the camp's lodge.

A witness to the collapse of the second-story deck of a Montana lodge during a memorial event for a firefighter says about 50 people were gathered on the structure overlooking Flathead Lake.

Emergency crews from Flathead and Lake counties responded to a deck collapse involving dozens of people on Saturday evening south of Lakeside. Many of her friends and relatives were taken away in ambulances, Dillon said.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell wouldn't speculate about how the collapse occurred, saying the camp's insurance company will likely look into the incident.

Two KRMC patients remain in critical condition, she said, and one was transferred to a hospital in Seattle. Bell said initial reports indicated at least 20 had been injured, but declined to provide more specific numbers. This is not the first time a deck has collapsed in the Flathead Valley.

"Of the more than 50 people hurt, more than half of them were taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center where doctors say many had bone and ankle fractures as well as neurological injuries that required immediate surgery". Others had serious injuries and had to be transported by helicopter. We are grateful to all of the EMTs/Paramedics, fire departments and first responders who came to our aid. The Spruce Lodge is described as a top notch facility on Glacier Camp's website. Besides hosting a summer camp, it is a popular spot for religious retreats, weddings and other events. Please join us in praying for the injured and their families.
