(CNN) – At least 19 teenagers were injured when a deck partially collapsed in the Houston area Thursday.
A Brazoria County spokesperson said five teens were flown to the hospital while six were taken by ambulance and others were taken in private vehicles.
She said none had life-threatening injuries.
According to the spokesperson, the victims, between 14 and 18 years old, were visiting the Bayou City Fellowship summer camp at Surfside Beach.

It is unclear why it failed, but police are investigating.
