A deck collapse early Friday at My Sisters Room in East Atlanta, a mainstay of lesbian nightlife, injured 12 people, though none seriously.
The incident, which took place about 2 a.m., comes less than a week after the deck was packed with patrons who were watching a charity boxing event (photo).
Seven of the injured were taken to Atlanta Medical Center, and another five were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Elizabeth Spencer, night administrator at Grady, said five women were being treated for injuries that she described as “not serious — certainly not life-threatening.”
