Fourteen vacationers were injured, some of them seriously, when the deck of a seaside villa collapsed Thursday on the U.S. Caribbean island of St. Thomas.

Two people suffered serious head injuries when the wooden deck suddenly gave way and spilled them onto rocks a couple of feet (less than a meter) below, according to hospital and police spokespeople.

There was no immediate word on their condition, and Virgin Islands authorities did not identify the names or nationalities of the 14 victims.
