Walkway collapse injures 17 on coastal Georgia dock

ST. MARYS, Ga. (AP) — A metal boat gangway collapsed on a coastal Georgia dock, injuring 17 people, including six who were sent to local hospitals. A group of Navy veterans was boarding a cruise on Tuesday in St. Marys, Georgia, when the gangway collapsed with a loud noise. Those waiting were Navy veterans and relatives having a reunion of crew members of the submarine USS Angler. St. Marys Mayor John Morrissey says it's too early to tell why the city-owned ramp collapsed. The city has temporarily closed its piers and boat ramps to inspect for other problems.
