Eleven people were injured when a porch collapsed Saturday evening in south suburban Tinley Park.The wooden porch was about 10 feet off the ground on the second floor of a townhouse. It fell on top of a group of people standing underneath the porch in the yard.

Officials said the injuries were not life-threatening.

The victims were taken to hospitals as a precautionary measure because most of them are senior citizens.
