Several injured as crowded balcony collapses at seafront property in Malibu

Several people were injured when the crowded balcony of a seafront property in Malibu, California collapsed on May 8, with video from a neighbouring property capturing the dramatic incident.  

Video from the scene showed more than 15 people on the balcony as it collapsed. CBSLA said they fell 15 feet onto rocks and sand below. 

Four people were taken to hospital, and several others treated at the scene, they said.  

Speaking to CBSLA, the homeowner said the property had been rented out, and only six people were meant to be there. 

The balcony was not intended to hold the number who were on it, CBSLA said.
