Nine Injured in Crab House Floor Collapse


By Al Campbell

DIAMOND BEACH — Nine persons were injured July 7 at about 7:30 p.m. when the floor of the Crab House Restaurant, which adjoined Two Mile Landing Restaurant, collapsed in a V-shape, according to Conrad Johnson, Wildwood fire chief, who acted as public information spokesman at the scene.
Johnson described the incident as a “partial collapse of the interior floor or the bar, kitchen and service area.” He added that about 300 patrons were in the immediate area of the collapse, and about 1,000 in the restaurants, which are located off Ocean Drive, between Wildwood Crest and Cape May.
The portion of the restaurant that collapsed was not over water, he said. None had to be rescued from the incident.
Johnson said none of those hurt appeared to have sustained life-threatening injuries. All were transported to Cape Regional Medical Center, Court House for treatment.
Inspectors from the New Jersey State Police Task Force and from Atlantic City Fire Department were summoned to the scene, Johnson said.
All employees and persons in the restaurant at the time of the incident were accounted for, he said.
