The homeowner, Greg Tulgren, tells KMSP-TV about 20 people were on the deck to pose for a photo Saturday. Tulgren's daughter was getting ready to snap the photo when the deck gave way, sending people tumbling to the ground.

Four people suffered broken bones. Three remained hospitalized Sunday, including one person who underwent surgery.
