Lincoln Park Porch Collapses; 3 Hurt



    Three people were hospitalized after a porch collapsed at a Lincoln Park apartment building Saturday night on the North Side.

    At 8:30 p.m., a first-floor porch gave way at 2034 N. Orleans St. and three people were injured, police and fire officials said.

    A still-and-box alarm -- the standard response for a collapse -- was automatically initiated and was secured shortly after crews arrived, MacGregor said.

    Three people fell about six feet into an area below and were taken to hospitals, most with ankle and leg injuries, MacGregor said.

    One person was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and two people were taken in good-to-fair condition to Northwestern University Medical Center, MacGregor said.
