Woman injured in New London deck collapse


NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) — A New London woman is back home from the hospital Tuesday after the deck she was standing on collapsed beneath her.

It happened around 5:00 p.m. Monday night at a multi-family home on Willetts Avenue. Police say the woman who lives there was standing on the third floor deck when it collapsed.
