GULF SHORES, Alabama -- Several Texas students on Spring Break vacation in Alabama were rushed to the hospital after the deck they were standing on collapsed beneath them.

According to CNN, the students were staying at a beach house in Gulf Shores. Around 4:30 p.m. Monday, 15 to 50 people were on an outside deck when it collapsed.

Witnesses told local TV station WPMI that "easily 40 people" were on the deck at one time when it came crashing down.

Police say six students suffered minor injuries. The renters were students from the University of Texas and Texas Christian University.
