A dramatic deck collapse in Indiana is now the subject of a bitter lawsuit.

The incident occurred Dec. 22, as a family gathered at their homeowner association’s clubhouse in New Albany.

The family was posing for a photograph when the structure suddenly gave way beneath them.

They have filed a lawsuit against the association and the company that built the deck.

However, the company that built the structure claims it is shielded from liability because the deck was more than 10 years old.
