Four people remain hospitalized in Kalispell nearly a week after a deck collapse in Lakeside injured more than 50 people.

Mellody Sharpton, director of communications and marketing for Kalispell Regional Medical Center, said as of Friday morning all four patients were listed in good condition.

A deck collapsed shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday at Glacier Camp just south of Lakeside, according to Lake County Sheriff Don Bell. First responders from across Flathead and Lake counties were called to the incident, and hospitals as far as Whitefish and Missoula accommodated a sudden influx of patients.

According to KRMC, there were a “significant number of orthopedic and neurological injuries that required immediate surgery.”

The majority of patients went to the Kalispell hospital.
