VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) -- No one was seriously injured after a second-story deck carrying more than a dozen people collapsed Friday night at a townhome in the Chic's Beach area. 

One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and another person was evaluated at the scene but refused to be transported, according to Division Chief Bruce Nedeka with Virginia Beach EMS. 

Nedeka says roughly 16 people were on the deck at the townhome in the 2200 block of Wood Ibis Way. Dispatchers got the call at 9:26 p.m.

A search of the property showed the townhome is in the Aeries on the Bay development, which was built in 1985.
