The houses on that street are the poorest quility that I have ever seen. I was househunting and toured a few. On top of poor construction, they were built on old swamp land and their foundations all leak due to shifting. Thats why the rest of that area is the airport. Termites, roaches, and houses rattling to the planes overhead. Any sucker investing in these homes have nothing to be surprised about.

I was one of the people involved in the incident. And I do not appreciate being called "fat" . Most of the people there were not overweight. The deck was holding 20 people. Thats about 3,000lbs! OK. SO find somehting better to do with your lives than critize.

You people have some nerve calling us fat. As a guest at the party, the majority of the people were slim and atheletic young adults. You have no consideration to those that were injured which was pretty much everyone there. I hope you are happy judging other people's lives when you have none of your own. Go find a hobby asshole.

Yeah, i dont appreciate the rude comments myself, i was also one of the people their and none of the people that were there were overweight, that had nothing to do with it collapsing, my opinion is because it was just an old deck, and it had been raining for over 25 days on and off in the past month, and at the time it was holding 20 people. Nobody saw it coming.
