    Diners Fall in Water when Florida Deck Collapses

    You all know how I feel about open water. I live in Florida where these dockside dining experiences abound. I always request indoor dining much to the chagrin of my dining partners. Sometimes I am out-voted, but I'm always uncomfortable when dining on a dock for exactly THIS reason:

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. ? A group of diners fell in the water after the deck of a Florida waterfront restaurant collapsed, injuring two of them who had to be taken to a hospital.

    Fire officials told news outlets the diners were eating outside at the Fort Lauderdale waterfront restaurant when a portion of the deck fell. At least three adults swam to a nearby boat at the dock and were pulled from the water by other people.

    Two of the diners were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

    Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Stephen Gollan told the South Florida Sun Sentinel the dock at Flip Flops Dockside Eatery had apparent signs of decay and visible areas that were recently repaired.

    A representative who answered the restaurant?s phone Saturday said they could not comment on the incident.

    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    Yikes, that was always one of my biggest fears in dining outside.

    The only thing that would've made it worse is if when the fell in they were attacked by alligators.
