A South Asian pre-wedding ceremony on Friday evening ended in chaos when a deck collapsed at a rented Aldergrove building in the area of 268th Street and 58th Avenue, resulting in 30-40 people receiving injuries. Some 19 of those injured were taken to various hospitals and one of them had to be airlifted, according to media reports. The injured included a two-year-old kid.
Rich Coleman, MLA for Langley East, turned up at the scene to make sure that people were taken care of.
However, the wedding went ahead on Saturday.
