The Boston Fire Department reports seven people were injured - three seriously enough to require hospitalization - when a porch collapsed at 527 Dudley St. in Roxbury Saturday night.

The department reports a 4x10 section of the third-floor porch gave way around 10:30 p.m., sending people on the porch 12 feet down to the second floor, part of the Fernandez Brothers liquor store.

Were it not for this being a scene of a tragedy where people were seriously injured, this photo would be a work of art in and of itself.
