Several people were injured when the ceiling of the Korean Union United Methodist Church, located in New Jersey, collapsed and fell on top of pews during Easter Services on Sunday April 5. According to NBC Local News, there were no fatalities.

There are many causes for ceiling collapses. They may have become too heavy over time. There may be a leak. The landlord or owner may have neglected the issue. Ceiling collapses can cause serious injuries:

  • Brain injury
  • Broken bone or fracture
  • Back and Neck injury
