Pier collapses under prom-goers

Posted under Lake Geneva premise liability attorneys

About a dozen Kettle Moraine High School students will have an unforgettable prom story to tell for years to come after a pier in Oconomowoc collapsed under them while they were taking pre-prom pictures.

Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt in the collapse. About half of the prom group was on the part of the deck that fell into the lake, but all were able to make it to the dance later that night with the help of fans and blow dryers.

A similar situation happened to a group of Fort Wayne, Indiana, teenagers over the weekend when a backyard deck collapsed during a group picture before prom.
