(PAWLEYS ISLAND, South Carolina) — More than a dozen people were injured when the deck of a hotel on South Carolina’s Pawleys Island collapsed Friday.

“They were taking a picture,” Police Chief Mike Fanning told ABC News Radio. “We had just finished a rain storm and there was apparently a beautiful rainbow behind them and they were trying to snap a picture of about 20 people—25 people, and the deck underneath them collapsed about 12 to 15 feet.”

Thirteen people were transported to the hospital, Fanning said.

Ten others were rescued, but refused treatment.
