Three people were hurt when a staircase collapsed, sending them plummeting into a 10 foot hole.

The incident happened around 6:45 p.m., outside a home on the 900 block of N. Madison Street, in the Dominion Hills neighborhood.

Three people — two adults and one child — suffered non-life-threatening injuries when the concrete staircase in front of the home collapsed under their feet and they fell into the hole. The Arlington County Fire Department technical rescue team extricated the victims and the two adults were transported to a local hospital.

Fox 5 has additional photos of the incident. The station reported that the victims were carrying groceries at the time of the collapse.
