- A family who moved into a rental house in Mill Island / Mill Basin, Brooklyn one week ago was celebrating Memorial Day out on their deck. The deck suddenly collapsed and the family fell into the water. Two of the kids, including a 4-year-old and a 9-year-old were injured but are lucky to be alive. The landlord, it turns out, has at least 12 violations. The above video is from Fox News.
