  • Officials respond to the scene where a stairway collapses injuring around 20 children on Nov. 11 2017

The 21 children and two adults gathered at Vault PK in Barrio Logan, an indoor gym that specializes in parkour - a military obstacle course training - when the celebration turned into horror just before 8 p.m., FOX5 San Diego reported.

San Diego medical units transported four children in serious condition to a nearby hospital, with one suffering from a possible spinal injury.

Approximately 20 children were injured.

San Diego Police officials said that the incident occurred at Vault PK at 1699 Main Street after a 10-by-30-feet platform suspended 10 feet off the ground collapsed, falling on at least 21 children. "One of them is good, he's right here the other is transporting, little head injury, he'll be fine", Guisti said.

Parent Cory Brizendine told KGTV the kids had been called up to the platform for pizza, but as they all flurried onto to, the "whole platform collapsed" at around 8pm local time.

Two women, ages 72 and 46, were among the first to be taken to hospitals.

"It could have been much worse", Wright said. "Nothing severe or critical".

There could be other children injured whose parents took them to hospitals, he said.

His kids suffered minor scrapes, Saari said.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Jose Ysea said investigators were at the scene of the incident in the morning Sunday and were checking to make sure the training facility had all of its permits in order.
