"Staircase collapses at apartment complex"

SAN ANTONIO – Behind some plywood barriers and caution tape, Churchill Park tenants will point you to a big problem at Building 13. They’ll show you a few dangling railings and the mangled mess left behind after a 3-level staircase collapsed.

Neighbors say two tenants were walking on the staircase this week when they heard a loud band. They say the impact threw one man against the wall. Now he’s having back problems.

(from WOAI-TV)

Wow. At the very least, you would expect a staircase to hold you up. Wouldn't you?
